What People Are Saying About 9 Bridges…


  “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.
Ilana Lehmann Member, 9 Bridges

  “9 Bridges not only helped me get past the first chapter of my novel but they connected me to people I will likely consider life long friends, helped me form an amazing critique group with excellent writers and editors, and helped me build a writing community. The founders really care about whether their individual community members succeed and they work hard to see that it happens. Thank you to 9 Bridges!
