… what you as a writer need from WordWrites Guild to better meet your expectations, to more easily fit into your busy life, and to help you achieve your goals as a writer.

In an effort to reach out to writers throughout Southeastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati, we invite each of you to take part in the following brief survey. The information will be used only for scheduling meetings, for planning special events such as workshops, writing contests, and author visits, etc., and for selecting meeting locations.

We respect your privacy and assure you that your responses and contact information – should you choose to share that with us – will never be shared, sold, traded, rented, broadcast, etc. We are simply reaching out to interested writers as we tweak and improve WWG.

Thank you for taking the few minutes necessary to complete this survey. 

If you have any difficulties accessing or completing the survey, please contact us at WordWritesGuild@gmail.com

Prioritize Your Writing

All kinds of writers join WordWrites Guild for support, reviews, critiques, and conversations about the craft of writing. Because we do not offer online support, we invite you to attend WWG meetings, special events, members’ book signings, etc. in person. It’s a great way to get to know fellow writers throughout the region, to hear feedback on your writing, and to receive in-depth critiques of your work prior to pitching, self-publishing, or submitting your project.

Please note the following WordWrites Guild meeting dates and locations – definite through June, 2018. Additional locations, meetings, events, etc. will be updated on this website throughout the year. All library-based meetings begin at 6:00pm and wrap up by 8:00pm.

January 11 —  6:00pm — Maverick’s Firewater Grill, US50, Greendale, IN — Two critiques of members’ work are planned. Please review the previous WWG post for information about this month’s visual writing prompt if you’d like to participate and share your writing exercise with the group that evening.

February 8 – Depot Room, Lawrenceburg Public Library

March 8 – Depot Room, Lawrenceburg Public Library

April 12 – Depot Room, Lawrenceburg Public Library

May 10 – Depot Room, Lawrenceburg Public Library

June 14 – Depot Room, Lawrenceburg Public Library

Please subscribe/follow this website in order to stay apprised of any changes, additional meetings, public events, and more.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Looking For a Good Read?

Leave a comment

We thought that the followers of WordWrites Guild might be interested in reading some of the published and in-progress works of our members from time to time. A popular speaker, successful author and co-chair of WWG, Susan Troutt has a rare gift for writing humor that makes younger readers and even adults laugh out loud. Her books include fun reads and memorable work – due in no small part to Susan’s literary talent and years of experience as an elementary teacher.

Feel free to enjoy a sample of Susan’s newest book, and look for future introductions to Susan’s fellow WordWrites Guild writers soon.

New Year, New Writing, New Friends

Welcome to 2018 – almost!

confetti-1925257_1920

Although the holiday season continues to be joyfully celebrated, a lot of us are wiping our brows, happy to wave farewell to a busy, but oh so last year. Soon it will be time to pick up the pen, warm up the laptop and brew the coffee or stir the cocoa.

Underneath layers of knitted sweaters and mittened fingers lies a sense of anticipation for the coming new year; one that promises fresh stories, thrilling plots and characters ready to surprise us.

What are you planning to do with this exciting new year? Will you tackle that great epic poem at long last? Will you complete your Pulitzer-worthy novel? Will you commit to writing once a month, or each weekend, or just on every day ending with the letter y?

And will you join a writers’ group for steady support, warm camaraderie, and respectful critiques of your work?

meeting-1738945_1280

For anyone living in the Greater Cincinnati area, WordWrites Guild is a good place to begin. Our ever-growing group is friendly, diverse and enthusiastic with plenty of fresh ideas for the coming year. Joining WWG is a great way to get off to a great start!

Charging into 2018, we’ll meet on January 11th – and then at least once every month throughout the year. Oh, but keep an ear to the ground and a sharp eye out for updates and news flashes since we will host additional get-togethers, events, and gatherings.

Please subscribe to this website so you’ll be sure to

receive updates and notifications about meetings, writing prompts and more.

Our first meeting of the new year will be held at Maverick’s Firewater Grill in Greendale, IN, on January 11th at 6:00pm. Please drop by to meet current members and enjoy some complimentary appetizers. Dinner will be on your own, but there is no need to dine – just share your writing resolutions/goals/hopes for the coming year, if you’d like.

Please note that we will be

critiquing and reviewing at least

two members’ submissions that evening.

And what would WWG be without our always popular 500 word (or less) take on our latest writing prompt? The photo below is this month’s prompt – it should light the imagination, brighten the mind, and warm up those creative juices:

We’ll look forward to seeing you on the 11th, but are always available to answer questions and provide information about the group. Feel free to contact us at WordWritesGuild@gmail.com, or by texting/leaving a voice message at 812-220-4594.

Happy Every Holiday and Happy ALMOST New Year!

christmas-1791778_1920As you enjoy the seasonal festivities on Thursday evening, you might want to share your creative take on this month’s writing prompt:

Winter Holiday Lost and Found

If you are familiar with WWG’s monthly writing prompts, it will come as no surprise that the word count is limited to 500 words, and the prompt is simply a starting point – you can incorporate the exact words in your piece, or you’re welcome to use the words purely as inspiration. Whether you prefer to write a poem, a short-short story, lyrics to a song – perhaps with bells ringing in the background – the choice is yours.
