The Fairbanks Community Writers Group’s mission is to nurture writers, regardless of style and genre, so they can achieve their goals. The Fairbanks Community Writers Group welcomes new members to their meetings and members are encouraged, but not required, to submit their writings. Other members read and critique each submission. Those who attend the monthly meeting prepare for the meeting by downloading submissions, reading and critiquing each submission ahead of time. The purpose of the critique is to give each author feedback on how the manuscript works, its good points and positive suggestions for improvement.
