    My daughter is in 4th grade and interested in writing. Are there any creative writing groups or workshops for kids in the Tulsa area?

    • nightscripts says:


      I don’t know of specific children’s groups in Tulsa. However, we have a few children’s authors in our group, even a couple of children’s editors/publishers. You and your daughter are welcome to attend a meeting or two.

    • Mary check with Holland Hall. They have a lot of children’s writing activities. At least they used to both of my children participated.

    I’ve been going through the NightWriter website updating information. We’ve not had a webmaster since Kristin left, so I’m taking a shot at it. I think I’ve got yours right.

  4. KWarsop says:

    I have written my first novel at almost age 74. It is a historical fiction set in Indian Territory during the Civil War. I need some advise before I proceed. I am on social security and can not afford a copy editor. I need someone to give me some advise about e books. The e books on amazon are selling so cheap! I am not good on computers but am trying to learn. I have felt so isolated that I would like to be around some refreshing younger writers. I love my story but I hate it too. I dread all the editing I must do. It was fun to write but as wonderful as computers are ; have a love-hate for them. I wrote my novel long-hand and it helped me be spontaneous. Hope to see you all in June!

    • nightscripts says:


      Wow, what an accomplishment! It certainly sounds like you’ve poured yourself into this new work. Of course, it also sounds like there’s much work ahead. I’d love to see it. You will certainly want to attend our June meeting. We’ll be covering Getting Through Your First Draft. I’m sure you’ll find it enlightening.

      • radine says:

        Join a critique group made up of both published and non-published authors! (Surely, in Tulsa, there are several??) I have been a member of an active critique group meeting at a local library for over sixteen years. It’s small, ave. 4-6 members. We each bring a chapter, or similar number of pages, from our work in progress to meetings, supply copies to all in the group (all publish in print, or hope to, as well as in e-books) and read our work aloud as they follow on their copies. They make notes on the copies provided, and then we discuss. It has been a huge help to me over the years, though my publishers have always provided editing as well.

    • Rex Griffin says:

      Welcome, KWarsop. I have just completed an historical fiction set in Indian Territory during the Civil War myself. I look forward to seeing you at the June meeting. Seems we have something in common.

  5. Laura Cooper says:

    I’m a freelance illustrator and I’m looking for opportunities to get involved with writers. I hope to attend the next meeting and see how I can get involved in Tulsa.

    • Connie Cox says:

      Laura, I’m writing a nonfiction, children’s book. Hoping to meet you at the meetings. I have just heard of this group tonight and can’t wait to attend and get involved.

  6. 9185199338 says:

    My name is Corey Carolina and I just finished my manuscript. I am looking for a good editor. Any ideas?

    • nightscripts says:

      We have a few people in our group that edit. Why not visit our March meeting? You can also visit some of our member links on our website and see who is looking for editing work.

  7. Liz Uzzel says:

    I am a writer and a Tulsa resident and looking to get involved local in my writing community. If I show up at one of the monthly meetings, do I need to have anything prepared or is more of a meet & greet type thing? I am assuming that I do not have to become a member to attend an initial meeting.


  8. Diane Geboskie says:

    I am an older writer, 64 who after many years of writing and stuffing typed manuscripts into boxes from my early 20’s made the leap to learn computer skills. After taking writing courses I published with Authorhouse.com which I cannot afford to do again. My book was a real experience in persistence although it was necessary to do a rewrite, having learned why readers felt the first chapter didn’t grab immediate interest. Now it’s been some time due to a lack of funds and a blown computer and I have written at least four books which have been in need of critique and assistance with the same mentioned problem of how to go about the process of using the technology and e books . Also, finding a real publisher since Authorhouse and knowing that I was given a thumbs up as being a great writer. Help! Amazon and Kindle books want me to send my digital book.

  9. Danetta Crook says:

    I’m very interested in,attending some nights.working on a book.

  10. Leah Hoffman says:
