Online Writing Group!
reward item
$20
per month
Starting in June, this tier is changing:
  • Everyone signed up at the $20 level can submit a chapter to [email protected], with the subject line "[Current Month] Online Writing Group." These chapters should be approximately 2500 words (a little over is okay), and you are encouraged to include up to 500 words of backstory to help us know what else has already happened in the novel. 
  • On the second Thursday of each month, I will choose four of these completely at random and post them on Patreon for people to read.
  • On the fourth Thursday, we'll get together on Zoom and discuss the chapters. Zoom links will be posted here and sent out via email a few minutes before the group begins.
Every member of the writing group will also have full access to my Patreon archive of annotated chapters, sneak peeks, and special announcements.

About

Hi! I'm Dan Wells, a New York Times bestselling author best known for the science fiction series PARTIALS and ZERO G, and the horror series I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER. I've written for movies, TV, stage, and games, and I cohost the Hugo-winning podcast Writing Excuses. I live in northern Utah with my wife, six children, a dog, a cat, and a rabbit.

I started this Patreon at the conflux of two pretty crappy situations: a bunch of hospital bills that happened to hit during a time when I couldn't sell a manuscript. It was rough, and we were struggling, but a bunch of you pitched in here and bought my chapter critiques and such, and I am eternally grateful. So thank you! We made it through the bad times, and came out the other side.

Today, the bills are paid off and I'm selling manuscripts again. And as much as I love taking your money, I'd prefer not to take it under false pretenses, so: I'm shutting down most of this Patreon. I'll keep the archive up, and I'll keep the writing group, but the chapter critiques are gone. I need that time anyway to write more books :)

To everyone who sent me chapters to critique: you're wonderful, and I love you. Thank you for letting me read your work, and I wish the best of luck.

If you really want to give me money, hop on over to my website and hire me to run an RPG campaign for you. I do a lot of those these days, and they're a lot of fun.
