They feel frustrated that no one has much more than plenty of complaining to offer in response to their problems.
They feel isolated and alone even though lots of other people are in their same situation. They don’t want to listen to a speech; they don’t want to hear a lecture; they don’t want to take a class: what they want and need is a moderated chance to converse with each other about what they might do to improve their difficulties.
The World Organization of Writers, a ‘Union of Communicators,’ can help to moderate, mediate, or otherwise facilitate such a Community Conversation or Dialog Session.
