Several years ago, I started the online writers' group Literary Lapse.
While we've gone through highs and lows and various iterations, we've held on through it all and formed a tight-knit little group. We've done prompt-based writing exercises (which briefly spawned a monthly contest in association with InkSpotter News), general critiques and camaraderie.
Two years ago, we started collaborating on the anthology Backless, Strapless & Slit to the Throat, and last year we joined forces on the chapbook The Communal Desk. Both were published in 2009.
What's next for Literary Lapse? We haven't decided yet. But I can't wait to find out.
