Hello Fellow Writers,
WordWrites Guild is gearing up for an especially busy month. We are currently reviewing two writers’ submissions. One is a delightfully written young readers’ chapter book – very funny! The other is a poignant short story about a beloved horse.
One of our members has accepted the Blogging A to Z Challenge. She and countless others will post to their blogs something, anything inspired by a different letter of the alphabet every day – except Sundays – through the month of April.
This is also National Poetry Month, so Word Geeks might like to visit the link for some terrific ideas for celebrating poetry. And with that in mind, every pocket will surely be filled with poems on April 30th – National Poem in Your Pocket Day.
We hope everyone has ample opportunity to play with language – indoors and especially out now that the days are warm and sunny. Have great fun and know that you are always welcome to stop by any WordWrites Guild meeting to share your love of words with like-minded folks.

Hello Fellow Writers,
Join WordWrites Guild in welcoming spring with fresh writing and budding talent. We will meet at the North Dearborn Library on Thursday, April 2nd to review/critique two submissions, and to share our creative responses to the most recent writing assignment.
WRITING EXERCISE FOR April 2nd
In 250 words or less, write a story about a main character who is a farmer and the a hunter.
Put the character in a situation dealing with a long walk with an old friend and “can’t get down”.
These prompts were chosen at random from The Storymatic tool/game/prompt generator.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

Even though skies are gray and temperatures plummet, there is no reason to shiver in the chill – simply head to your desk and keep those fingertips warm by writing the next literary masterpiece.
As your work progresses, be sure to attend WordWrite Guild meetings. Each twice-monthly meeting offers members ample opportunity to share their work for honest critique and sincere accolades.
Under the Writing tab, all writers will find a new writing assignment that is chosen by the group at each preceding meeting. Everyone is encouraged to read their piece aloud. It is always fun to hear the many variations and perspectives that stem from one prompt.
Everyone is also invited to share examples of published authors’ incredible writing – or examples of horrific grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, etc. All writers learn from one another – and sometimes those lessons are found in the most unexpected places.
As we all create and stumble and celebrate and ponder, fellow word-geeks at WordWrites Guild are there to share the process.
We are a welcoming group of writers who share a love of language and a need to put words to paper; all with a sense of fun and friendship. We are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

We are happy to announce that WordWrites Guild is now on Meetup.com,
We are looking forward to meeting new writers who have learned about us through this new site.
We at WordWrites Guild hope that each of you enjoyed safe and happy holidays – and that all of those family dinners, retail adventures, and quiet moments have resulted in an abundance of inspired writing.
If you are an experienced writer who hopes to put more words on paper, complete that novel, or experiment with a different genre this year, then WordWrites Guild welcomes you. If you are a new writer who is just beginning to discover the fun of putting pen to paper, then we invite you to join our respectful and encouraging group. Our members know all too well the joy and frustration of word-wrangling, so enjoy sharing tips, lessons learned, and challenges with our writing community.
Our meetings will resume on January 15, 2015 at the NORTH DEARBORN PUBLIC LIBRARY at 6:00pm. As always, our meetings are free of charge and open to all writers of any genre or skill level.
We look forward to seeing you this month and throughout the new year.

Hello Fellow Wordies!
We at WordWrites Guild have been a tad distracted due to some personal calamities and familial challenges – but through it all, we are still writing and reading and learning.
As summer slips into autumn, WWG members are already filling in next year’s calendar. Some topics being discussed are regional workshops, writing contests, new guests for the 2015 Conversations with Authors series, and fresh approaches to community outreach.
If you would like to lend your voice to the creative din, just drop by one of our meetings. You are more than welcome to share your literary work, your exciting ideas and your writing dilemmas.
Please go to our Calendar page for information about our upcoming meetings and special programs and events. As always, there are no fees or dues required – simply a love of language and an inclination to string words together.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
