Welcome to The Red Dress Club

We're so glad you're here! We've been working hard to bring you this new place, and we're totally freaking out with excitement about it!

The Red Dress Club is a place for us to gather and talk shop. And by shop, we mean the business of writing.

We're not talking about blog writing, although the advice we hope to give and get on this site will certainly apply to that.

We want this to be a spot where we help each other learn more about the art of writing in hopes that we will all someday be published writers. No matter what your particular Red Dress is - and read our "About" page if you have no clue what we mean by Red Dress - we want you to take it out, shake it off and wear it proudly here.

You'll notice at the top of the blog we have a "join us" page, and at the top of this post, a link about a workshop for members. This is for a password-protected blog where you can post excerpts from your work-in-progress and get feedback from the other members. All requests for joining will be subject to approval from us (Cheryl and Ericka). We want it to be a positive, constructive space for your Red Dress!

Also, we'd love to get some live discussion going on the Writer Chat page. We're all looking for tips and encouragement, so feel free to chat away!

Take a few moments and poke around. We're on Facebook and Twitter (natch!) so make sure you're hooked up.

We look forward to getting to know you, and to bringing you lots of interesting and fun stuff very soon!



  1. Congratulations! Love the concept, I'm putting on my red dress and joining you here! Can't wait to see all the creativity flowing.

  2. Exciting!!! What a great idea. The name is even awesome. Thanks, Ericka and Cheryl.

  3. Great idea ladies. Proofreading is such an important part of this process, or so I am learning. I look forward to seeing the tools you make available here.

  4. This looks like fun... but, I am in NO way a fabulous writer! Ha, but I will follow to see all those other amazingly lovely lady writers out there. :)

  5. So glad to have you all here! Make sure you stop over at the writers chat and introduce yourself!

  6. thank you everyone! we're still in the process of going through everyone's applications and we're so excited everyone's interested in this!


Write it!
