In June, 2015, I gathered a handful of fellow writers, bloggers, and editors at my brother and sister-in-law’s home in Newark, Delaware. People I had been corresponding with and writing with and editing with for years before that.
Because I was hawking myself as The Word Shark, “The Sharkies” became a reality. Each professional and experienced attendee had their chance to present, share, and educate the others. We had robust writing exercises and discussions.
We come from North Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
Even with covid, we have managed to continue to meet about every quarter to share, encourage, and commiserate on our successes and failures, via zoom.
We had one such meeting yesterday, Saturday, 11/13.
I always come away from these get-togethers with a clear vision for what else I want to do, what else I need to do, with pages full of notes and inspiration, and an I’m-oh-so-grateful feeling for this group.
If you’re a writer,
Find YOUR Sharkies.

Writing tribes are priceless!
They truly are, Linda. I love this group and feel so fortunate and blessed.
Honored to be a Sharkie and agree that this group has been so nourishing and important to all of us. Karen’s still the Head Shark!
This group is so incredibly awesome! I’m glad you’re a part of us, E.
This Sharkie is late to the post, but no less appreciative of what it means to be a SHARKIE!!
