The Full Story

The Full Story is a subgroup of JC Writers intended to provide support for writers of longer, book-length works of fiction. Our goal is to match up writers who then work in pairs and small groups to encourage one another and offer consistent feedback throughout the writing process.

Additionally, for members who complete their novels (or other book-length manuscript) and want fresh feedback on the work as a whole, we offer a monthly critique session. For this critique, members of JC Writers take 2-3 weeks to read the manuscript and then meet toward the end of the month to discuss the novel with the author.

Anyone working toward producing a publishable novel or interested in reading others’ novels is welcome to join! Please email for details.
