Although we hope to enjoy at least a few more weeks of warm weather, WordWrites Guild is looking forward to a productive autumn and an exciting winter. In addition to taking advantage of regular writing prompts, WWG members are in the process of critiquing Susan T.’s newest project, and are currently updating the group’s 2018 calendar that is posted below.

Every writer is invited to join this friendly group to talk about the craft of writing, the challenges of creating, and the thrill of language. No matter if you are new to writing or a seasoned author, you are welcome to stop by and connect with fellow wordsmiths.

The writer-focused meetings begin at 6:00PM and wrap up by 8:00PM. There is never a charge, and all you need to bring is yourself, your work, and your curiosity. There is no pressure to share your writing projects with the group, but you are encouraged to participate in discussions, critiques, and monthly writing exercises.

Please take a moment to subscribe to this site and/or sign up for email alerts. If you have any questions, please contact us for more information by email, text, and/or voice message.  We appreciate your interest and are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Please note the upcoming dates and locations listed below.

Looking for a Prompt?

We at WordWrites Guild are an eclectic mix of folks – teachers, painters, drivers, students, grandparents, musicians, engineers – all Jacks and Jills of many trades! In an effort to bring fresh creativity into our writing, from time to time we will be using photographs, music, and more for our twice-monthly writing prompts.

We are excited about the following image and can’t wait to hear what everyone comes up with for the August 24th at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm when they share their writing inspired by:

Have fun – with 500 words, or fewer!

IMPORTANT NOTE — Although the next WWG meeting will be held at the normal 6:00pm time, at the normal North Dearborn Public Library location, on the normal second Thursday of the month, due to members’ availability, this prompt will be shared at the later August meeting, as stated correctly above.

Have you found that your writing flowed more easily than usual as a result of the current prompt?

The bus shelter in the rain.

Whether it has, or whether you have been mired in a literary drought (isn’t mixing weather and metaphors fun?), you are welcome to join fellow writers on this Thursday, June 22nd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm – rain gear optional!

This soggy prompt might open up a watershed of ideas:

The bus shelter in the rain

Of course you know the routine – just write whatever you’d like using the prompt as inspiration, but limiting your masterpiece to 500 words or fewer.

Our next WordWrites Guild meeting will be held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm on Thursday, June 22nd – rain or shine!

There will be quite a lot to read, share and enjoy – so walk right in, grab a chair and be a part of a growing and welcoming group of wordies!

 

Fun With Words!

Leave a comment

We welcome May with quite an interesting assortment of words with which to create, compose, and craft. These disparate choices were made by blindly reagirls-1149935_1920ching into that shimmering universe of language – a vintage box of vocabulary cards! Oh, the joy of discovering an antediluvian word – just waiting to be released from the dust and silence of disuse.

Circumlocution

Lavish

Placid

Euphony

Baffled

Protuberance

As always, the word limit is 500 – and you can use your imagination as far as content, genre, etc. Of course you are welcome to play along at home, although you might have a better time joining your fellow word-geeks at the next WordWrites Guild meeting on Thursday, May 11 at the North Dearborn Library from 6:00-8:00. We are always happy to see new faces, to hear new voices – and to learn new things!
