This small place actually lets my previous critique group use the back room for meetings at no charge. It's a coffee shop with books you can borrow and great yummies to keep one fortified while writing. I now live in NC, but my old group still meets there, going on 6 years now. I'll try to get some pictures the next time I'm there.

Heh - Borders is gone, but Barnes & Noble in Topeka is where my group meets, usually at 2 pm on the third Sunday of each month, and the coffee there is excellent.

We are a serious group of four writers of YA novels, and half of us are also SCBWI members. We have room for one or two more serious-minded YA authors; if you're interested, feel free to contact me via PM here so I can provide more details. We read a YA book a month - sometimes "assigned", sometimes random, and we write at least a chapter a month in our current works-in-progress, and then we trade critiques of them.

Looking forward to meeting you!
