Anyone in this region interested in forming a writing group? I live in Ankeny, but since I don't even see any groups here for Iowa, I'll stretch it out to the Des Moines area
I majored in English with an emphasis Creative Writing and am currently a member of F&SF Writers Workshop on google groups, which meets in Second Life. I have written the first draft of a Christian Fantasy called The Tsadakeen.
The Tsadakeen is a Christian Fantasy novel set in an alternative universe where their "fall" caused a virus that turned man into a hybrid of man and animal. These hybrids are called Shofar, and have discovered a mountain range full of the precious stone, moker, by which they enhance their magic and have developed advanced weapons. An unlikely hero, Orino, comes upon the prophesied scepter of righteousness. This scepter has seven jewels with different powers that help him and his new band of followers fight the newest and most dangerous invasion of the Shofar.
I hope to hear back soon. Des Moines could really use a Christian writing group!
