Hi Keith,

We agree that writes need more support. We have just set up a social enterprise that covers your area, wherever you live. You can join for a modest sum and then take part in web-based or face to face meetings and groups.

We are members of NAWG. We also publish good work on line and give feedback, even if we don't publish your work.

Take a look
