The Writers Coffeehouse in San Diego, a free 3-hour networking session that meets monthly at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore, facilitated by Jonathan Maberry and The Liars Club. If Jonathan is unable to attend, Peter Clines or Scott Sigler moderate the sessions.
While Jonathan, Peter, and Scott all write horror or thriller genre fiction, the discussions are not limited to a specific genre.
There are no requirements to attend and no fees. Both a Facebook group and a Yahoo group exist that include members from Writers Coffeehouses around the country.
The Facebook group is public. Anyone can join and post. Jonathan encourages sharing information with the group through the Facebook page.
Because Yahoo groups are hard to find, here’s the link to it: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/WritersCoffeehouseOnline/info. It’s a private group that requires approval, so begin with the Subscribe option below.
