New Writers' Group

We're starting a new Writers' Group at Fireside Books!

This will be a politics-free and judgment-free group where you can present and receive feedback from an experienced writing teacher.  


Are you interested in flexing your creative writing muscle? 

Are you seeking fellow writers who can provide inspiration and feedback?

As the Page Turns Book Club

Woman on the Edge of Time,  by AJ Hackwith

Hailed as a classic of speculative fiction, Marge Piercy's landmark novel is a transformative vision of two futures--and what it takes to will one or the other into reality. Harrowing and prescient, Woman on the Edge of Time speaks to a new generation on whom these choices weigh more heavily than ever before.
