With Pen in Hand …

… anything is possible!

Completing that memoir, pitching your book, fine-tuning that poem … it’s so much easier – and way more fun – when shared with encouraging, respectful and friendly wordsmiths just like you.
So often we hear from terrific writers who want to learn more about WordWrites Guild, but who wonder the same thing, ‘I don’t know if I’m really a ‘writer’; if my writing is good enough; if I’m ready to share this with anyone’.
And we at WWG say the same thing – just stop by; hang out with fellow writers who struggle, who sometimes write badly, sometimes better and once in a while – wow! We are all working on the craft, we each try to put onto paper the things that have meaning to us – whether that is a memory or a dream.
No matter where you are on your writing path, you are welcome at any WWG meeting. There are no dues, no criteria to meet – and no pressure to share your work. The art and business of writing is as varied as the people who have that need for and love of words.
Your voice will be a great addition to the community that is WordWrites Guild.

March Meets Mystery

In 500 words or less, write a suspense story that will take your readers to places they’ve never been, see things they’ve never seen, and keep them on the edge of their seats – because with only 500 words, they won’t have any pages to keep turning!


We’re anxious to hear your suspenseful stories and read your mysterious manuscripts on Thursday, March 23rd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00PM. Always free, always welcoming, and always creative.
