The Writers of the Weird is the Association's monthly critique group for aspiring genre authors.  The purpose of the group is to assist its members with the craft and business of publication in paying markets.  Members share market information and workshop their stories.  Critiques are done both in live sessions and via the internet.


The in person sessions are held on either the fourth or fifth Sunday of the month at the home of the group moderator.  Summertime meetings are held at other members' homes.  Participants bring multiple copies of their work to the sessions.  The pieces are read aloud and critiqued by those present.  The process is described at the link How We Do Things.


The Association maintains a private Writers of the Weird Google Group and a Weird Novels Google Group for posting works in progress and sharing marketing and other information.


The Writers of the Weird put on a variety of programs at libraries, bookstores and other venues.  These can be group efforts r solo presentations.  Details can be found under Book an Event!


Members of the Writers of the Weird have sold both print (Bantam Books) and e-book (Drollerie Press) novels.  Their short fiction has appeared in original and original/reprint anthologies like Sword & Sorceress and 100 Vicious Vampire Stories, print magazines like Black Gate, Strange Tales, and Space and Time , and electronic magazines like Apex & Abyss, Strange Horizons and  Jim Baen's Universe.


The Writers of the Weird have both a Private and a Public Website.
