Writers group in Zurich?

Hey there!
I didn't know where to ask this so I hope it will fit here x)

I wanted to know if there are like a writers group in Zurich (english speakers), and if so, how exactly does it work?

I've been writing since I was 12 or 13 (can't remember) and I actually shared some of my works in portuguese foruns (I write in portuguese but I've been meaning to try it in english), but I never was part of a writers group. I was invited to be part of one by a published writer back in Portugal, but I was already living in Switzerland which made it impossible.

So if there are writers here who may be part of one of those groups, could you please enlighten me?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Writers group in Zurich?

Hi Jessi,

I've seen different groups on MeetUp that focus on writing. This is one of them, they have a meeting this Sunday.
http://www.meetup.com/The-Zurich-Tal...nts/222270420/.
I would suggest you take a look there and see if you can find anything that you like.

Good luck!

Bee

Hi!
If you're still interested in a writers group, check out Otherworlds, based in Zürich.

We meet on a monthly basis, and in September we are holding 2 open houses. I'll post our ad, which has links you can check out for more info.

OtherWorlds, a Zürich based writers group is currently seeking new members.

Do you write novels? Are you interested in getting feedback on your work from other authors, and helping them improve their writing? If so, you might wish to join the OtherWorlds writing group in Zurich.

We are a group of novel writers who give each other feedback on a monthly basis, and so far it’s been very useful for all of us.

We are looking for new members. Writers in all genres are welcome; we’d like you to have a novel that is ready for critique, or to be moving fast towards writing one.

For more details, see http://bradtowers.com/otherworlds/ and http://bradtowers.com/membership/.

If you are interested, feel free to contact our fearless leader, Brad, or one of the other group members (for example brad@bradtowers.com) and submit a writing sample.

Cheers,
Sabrina

Hey
First of all, thank you so much for the invitation
I do have a few things written but it's all in portuguese and most things are back in my country.. the one I brought with me to keep writing is a book I've been trying to finish for a long time but it has hundreds of pages already and it is in portuguese as well, so it's really not something I could just take with me to one of those meetings I guess x)

I do want to write in english though and that's the main reason why I want to find a group like this, because I'm not used to write in english and it would be good to have some feedback from someone more experienced. But I don't think I can participate right now.. I need to have some peace of mind to write well and as it happens, Switzerland has not been kind on me, so since I'm here in this country I don't really write much. I thought when I moved to Zurich it would be better but right now I'm dealing with so many problems that I can't write a thing!!!

I hope everything will be solved in time and then I'll have my writer spirit back in my soul when I do, I'll reach out to you

No problem! I understand how hard it can be to survive here, I've had my fair share of problems. I hope you find your way
