 FindAWritingGroup.com is now officially up and running!

I've already got a few FAWG links set up.  If you'd like to help, please consider doing the following:

- Start or join a FAWG Yahoo group in your state/country. 
It's a free to join/free to use service.  Add details of your writing group(s) to the relevant
FAWG link. If your country/state doesn't yet have one, consider setting it up yourself.

- Spread the word.
Please tell your blog readers and current writing group members about FAWG.com. If you’re feeling especially helpful, you could add a permanent link to
FindAWritingGroup.com to your blog’s sidebar (Home/Customize Journal Style/select ‘Links List’ (below ‘Customize your theme’)

- If you haven’t already done so, add your writing tip to the Wall of Wisdom.

- Lastly, please consider adding the site's blog, Write Around the World, to your Favorites (or RSS thingy). 
Over the coming months I hope to provide some great writing posts and helpful links there.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.  I'm particularly grateful to those folks who've already started spreading the word.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

Two things:

1. My writing group is already a Yahoo group. But you only want one per state, right? So I would go to the FAWG for Illinois, and put the link to my group there, rather than sending you the link to my existing group?

2. I think it would be helpful if the main FAWG groups allowed non-members to view their links. That way, if someone who either doesn't have a yahoo account or is shy is searching, they don't have to join the group just to check if there's one in their city.

If there isn't already a FAWG link for Illinois, and you wanted to use an existing Yahoo group, that would be great (it's what I did for the New Jersey link).

If you decide to do that, don't forget to let me know, and send me the relevant bio and links.

I'm not sure it's possible for Yahoo Groups to let non-members see their links. Besides, folks can always set their email option to 'Web only' (which means no e-mails at all) when they join, though I would hope people use the Yahoo groups as a way of keeping in touch with other writers.

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for taking an interest :)

I'll check back soon and see if someone else makes a group for my state first, and then let you know.
