“There is a special energy that comes from writers sharing their insights as readers. It’s like having a focus group with people who can actually express themselves about the written word.

“There is no better time than now for giving credit and a sincere thank you to this group for the help, patience and encouragement I’ve received. Recently, others have commented that they have noticed improvement in my pieces. Gaining a more critical eye for things I read is an unexpected bonus. Anyone wanting to improve their writing skills should seek out 9 Bridges. What a fine bunch of people!

“A friendly group of authors of various genre. I have learned to appreciate the different type of feedback I receive as a result of the “read aloud” format. Great for getting advice about transitions, short pieces, and scene setting. It has also taught me a new way of listening to other people’s stories.
