Not sure if anyone is out there, but I had an idea and I wanted to see if anyone else here thought it might be interesting or useful.
Are there any chicago writing groups that focus on comics specifically or even on sci-fi and fantasy or (god help me) 'genre fiction?' If thre aren't do you think it might be worthwhile to start one?
I don't know about you all but I'm having trouble getting useful feedback when I run into a writing wall with my stuff. It would be EXTREMELY helpful to me to have a group of people to bounce ideas off of and get real critiques from that have some idea of the differences between regular books and comics and the ground in between. I have gone to a couple of writing groups/workshops in the past, but the people there didn't get what I was trying to do with my work, so most of the critiques I got (I felt) were more related to the 'comic-ness' of the piece. (DOes that make sense?
Anyway, what do you all think? Is this a worthwhile idea?
