I have firsthand experience and would recommend the following:
Oklahoma Writing Groups
Tulsa – Fellowship of Christian Writers (FCW)
Find them on Facebook, meets monthly, educational.
Tulsa – Tulsa Area Writer’s Connect
Email me for more info. Is a small, informal gathering of Tulsa area writers who come together socially and share a few learning lessons and encouragement too. Very informal. Meet 1x/quarter.
Oklahoma City – Oklahoma Christian Fiction Writers (a branch of ACFW)
Meets monthly, always educational.

I highly recommend this one. Small class sizes & accessible teacher. Helped me tremendously.

Website, Graphics, & Publishing Tools/Help
Website Hosting – SiteGround
Reliable & fast.
(Most of the photos are ones I took, but if they’re really professional looking–ha! ha!–we can thank Deposit.)
Wonderful site for creating graphics (Free and paid version)
Self-Publishing (Magazines & Books – for gifts and sales)
(I LOVE this tool. Not only does it indicate grammar and punctuation mistakes, but it also highlights passive voice and other things to help the writer create a stronger piece.)
