Thanet Creative Writers have been running Facebook groups since early 2013.
Our group is used to talk about writing, ask questions, and seek beta readers for feedback on our writing. It is also where our events are promoted. At the start of 2017, there were around 70 members with about 3 new members a week being added.
Our current group was started after four members tried to take over the original one but discovered that most of our members simply left with us to somewhere a touch safer.
There is a second group which will serve as the launching platform for new initiatives as well as a coordination point for the charity itself.
Anyone may join our group but due to recent spam attacks, we like to talk to new members first, just to see that you are a real person. Talking to new members also helps us understand what we can do to serve the needs of our members
