CHAPTERS

Omega Writing Groups are called Chapters. Groups usually meet for two hours every couple of months. Some groups have guest speakers, and some run writing-related events.

Chapter members may share excerpts from their latest writing projects, for feedback and encouragement, or news of upcoming writing competitions, workshops and conferences.  

The Omega Management Committee is always interested in hearing from people who would like to create and lead a Chapter. Contact us if that might be you.
