Resources for writers abound on the internet. Information about writers groups and classes/events located in the Las Vegas area are listed below.There may be more I am not aware of (probably are). I will be adding editors I personally know and respect. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to reach out.
PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES FOR AUTHORS:
Christine Fairchild is amazing. She is an author, book coach and editor who shares her knowledge with others at conferences and through online classes. I recently took The First 50 Pages with her and it was phenomenal.
Aliante Writers Group – North Las Vegas
Aliante Writers is a small group that meets the first and third Tuesday of every month from 5:30-7:30 PM at Aliante Public Library. It is free to everyone. Due to popular demand, meetings are devoted to critiques. Those who want to read bring six to ten copies to hand out before reading. Participants write their comments/suggestions and return the chapter/story… to the author after the group’s verbal feedback. On occasion, we have a guest speaker. Open to all levels – from those considering writing to experienced published authors. I facilitate this group, with help from others. Visit http://www.meetup.com/Aliante-Writers-Group/.
