I have created this group because I would like to tighten bonds with certain TNBW authors. Beyond simply reviewing our stories, I think we can know each other a bit better, despite living far away. As writers, knowing each other a bit more as persons may also help to better understand the motivations and messages behind our stories. I also think that, using the Group's forum, we can hold group discussions about the story of one of us, proving group and creating an actual community.
I created the group as a closed group in order to make sure the people participating really want to be part of it and are willing to participate, rather than joining just because.
