About the Journey
Originally called the Pledge, the Journey is the Illinois::Naperville region's year-round writing group. Ground rules (such few as exist) are set up by the participants of each year. We encourage people to write down their writing goals, whatever they may be; and we will try to help each other achieve these while
- socializing (hey, we all have writing as a common interest)
- doing some writing exercises (to help us grow as writers)
- sharing information (e.g., experiences with query letters, agents and publishing houses)
- writing some short stories (e.g., for anthologies that we self-publish)
- doing some critiquing of each other's stories, though there are other resources online that might be better for that (e.g., critters, critique circle and urbis)
How to use this site
This is just the front page of the site. There is a members-only wiki; members have been sent an access login and password that they can use to access the members-only site.
Once inside the site, new members will need to register their own personal account (login and password). Note that this means that future write-access to the members-only site requires a two-step login:
- use the access-login/access-password to access the site
- setup/use a personal wiki login/password to actually do things on the wiki.
