For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,
Ephesians 2:14 NASB
Writer’s groups are varied, depending on the genre and type of critique. Some are all-purpose, and some confine members to a single genre. Some are in-person, and some are video/online conversations. Some prefer the solitary way of books.
I have been a member of a few writer’s groups. Most of the time, the members were supportive of our pages.
A few times a disruptive person would join the ranks and cause discord. Often it was the subject matter or crowding the table/computer screen. Or both.
Our minds were joined to improve our writing craft. And to foster Heavenly creativity, the disruptive writers needed to be given other options.
