Every month, each member of our Creative Council hosts an hourlong Fireside Chat, which takes the form of a chat on our server. They'll pose questions for you and you'll have the opportunity to ask them questions about your writing practice.
The power of our Fireside Chats lies in their consistency. Members of our Creative Council are signed up to work with us for at least six months, meaning you'll get to build a relationship with an expert in the field you're working in.
Our Fireside Chats are exclusive to Writers Blok Online members.
