Meeting Reminder

Leave a comment


It’s time to sharpen your pencils, gather your masterpieces, and join fellow wordsmiths at this week’s gathering of writers at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at  6:00PM in the Ewbank Room.

The current writing prompt is:

The entrance to the tunnel was his only way out.

Although the final count is limited to 500 words, what you do with those words is of course entirely up to you. It’s always exciting to hear different interpretations, to discover a fresh twist on each new prompt. And as always, membership is free; the setting casual and friendly.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on…

Hello Fair Reader!

Are you taking full advantage of rainy days and chilly nights to light the lamp, dip the quill and escape into a world of delight, horror or adventure?


To help you on your literary way, WordWrites Guild offers this intriguing writing prompt:

The entrance to the tunnel was his only way out.

If you will be sharing your masterpiece at the next WordWrites Guild meeting, the total count is limited to 500 words – including the prompt.

Will this be The Year?

The year you attend your first writers’ conference?

The year you complete that novel? Screenplay? Epic poem?

The year you join WordWrites Guild and connect with fellow writers?

This could be the year …

It’s as easy as sending an email, making a call,

coming to a meeting. 



You’ll be warmly welcomed and just think – it’s such an easy way to check another resolution off your list!


We’re looking forward to meeting you soon!

At last — the first annual

WordWrites Guild Writers’ Festival

is slated to take place on

Thursday, October 27

in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM 

and YOU are invited!


This special event is free and open to anyone interested in writing, reading, the Arts, publishing, and even those folks interested in getting an early start on holiday gift giving.

Regional writers, illustrators and photographers will answer your questions, share their insights and happily autograph books for you – or for your favorite book lover.


Throughout the evening, the public can take part in a scavenger hunt for prizes, contribute a line or two to a Community Build-A-Book, enjoy light refreshments, and so much more.

There is no need to R.S.V.P. – simply gather your friends and join members of the WordWrites Guild in celebrating our 5th anniversary with wonderful writers, photographers, and illustrators. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to talk with your favorite authors, discover new books, win prizes, play games and enjoy refreshments.

We’re looking forward to seeing you

this Thursday night!!


A New Season and A New Schedule


2826, 1926.98

Autumn,  1893    Artist: Harry Siddons Mowbray, American, born Egypt, 1858 – 1928


Change is in the air. We wrap it around our bare shoulders on chilly evenings, and we taste it when we bite into hard, cold, just-picked apples. We smell it in smoke-infused breezes and we see it along woodland paths of rust and gold.

This season of change is a fitting time for the WordWrites Guild to announce a new schedule and an invigorating event. As you may already know, tomorrow’s meeting marks the beginning of the new WWG meeting schedule:

Every SECOND Thursday of the month,

we will meet at North Dearborn Branch Library


Every FOURTH Thursday of the month,

we will meet at the Lawrenceburg Public Library


Our meeting times remain the same – from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, and the premise of the group is unchanged; that is, to offer encouragement, support, and respectful critique to every writer who joins our friendly group to share a love of writing with fellow word-wranglers.

1933.447, 5919
Wooden Writing Tool  ca. 323 B.C.-A.D. 256



In keeping with our open-door approach to membership and our commitment to the community, WordWrites Guild is hosting the first annual Writers’ Festival on Thursday, October 27th in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

This free event is open to the public from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM, and offers everyone an opportunity to meet a variety of writers, illustrators, and more. Along with refreshments, there will be a Book Title Scavenger Hunt, a Community Build-a-Book, and terrific door prizes (including a special prize for anyone bringing in our display ad from the Beacon newspaper).

If you, or someone you know, would like to reserve a space (completely free of any fees or charges) to showcase and sell your published books, or if you might like to volunteer for the evening, please contact us – we’d love to hear from you.

Please be sure to join us for this inaugural event, and feel free to bring family and friends – it is only with your attendance that the evening will be a success. Thank you for your interest, your support and your enthusiasm.
