I'm thinking about making a writers club and wanted to get some opinions before dropping $50k on something that might not even get off the ground. So I have just a few questions for any fellow writers here on EV.

1. Would you be interested in joining a club for writers?
2. Would you want to have writing contests?
3. Would you want the club to be a place just for sharing your work and having people suggest edits?
4. Would you want the club to also suggest authors or other reading material?
5. If you're interested, do you have any other ideas for what this club could potentially do?

1-4. Absolutely!!!!
5. Not sure if you've ever done NaNoWriMo, but we could do some sort of drafting contest like that (doesn't have to be 50k words in a month XD of course, maybe something closer to 10-20ish)

1. Would you be interested in joining a club for writers?
    Yes!
2. Would you want to have writing contests?
    Personally I likely wouldn't enter them since I'm not too fond of contests, but I'm sure others would be interested.
3. Would you want the club to be a place just for sharing your work and having people suggest edits?
    Yes, I think that would be neat.
4. Would you want the club to also suggest authors or other reading material?
    Yes!
5. If you're interested, do you have any other ideas for what this club could potentially do?
    n/a

1. Would you be interested in joining a club for writers?
Heck yeah! I'd love that.

2. Would you want to have writing contests?
Sure! That sounds like a lot of fun. I'd love to enter.

3. Would you want the club to be a place just for sharing your work and having people suggest edits?
Edits would be good, but more specifically critiques. Describing what works well, what doesn't work so well, what you didn't understand. Since critiquing can go a lot more in depth than simply suggesting edits, I'd love a biweekly/monthly thread where we pair up to critique each other's stories. They should all be around the same length to make it fair. Probably try to keep length within 500-750 words of each other. Either only within each pair, or the thread could have a word limit.

4. Would you want the club to also suggest authors or other reading material?
That'd be great - the most important part of writing other than writing is reading, after all.

5. If you're interested, do you have any other ideas for what this club could potentially do?
There should be a board that lists all of our names and what genres and topics we like to write/read about. That way we can find others with experience in similar genres, and ask for expertise in ones we're less familiar with.

Yes! I love to write.
2. Would you want to have writing contests?
Can't guarantee I'd enter all of them, but I think that sounds fun.
3. Would you want the club to be a place just for sharing your work and having people suggest edits?
It would be amazing to have somewhere to do that.
4. Would you want the club to also suggest authors or other reading material?
That would be great! I can never find enough interesting books to read.
5. If you're interested, do you have any other ideas for what this club could potentially do?
Ummm... no? I liked what everyone else has suggested though.

Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect, but since I got some enthusiastic responses and clear interest I've set up a club! Look for Writers Guild. There's no fee for joining. I've only just set it up so I still have some work to do on it. Let me know if you want to help in any way. I'd also like to create a couple of Admins for the club that can take over in case I'm unable to be here for a bit.

Yes and yes! I'd love to have you both! I'm glad to have some help. And Bonnie, any badge you want to make would be perfect! Next order of business is to set up a sort of registry for the members. Note their names and the genres they like to write about.

Alrighty. I've created a working layout for our guild. Please let me know through comment or private message what genres you tend to write in and I'll update our Writers Registry.
