New Write Day! New Write Location!

Leave a comment


No, we haven’t gone batty – on Wednesday, February 28th, we will gather in the meeting room of the Harrison Branch Library at 6:00pm.  Anyone interested in writing needn’t remain in a cave – instead all writers are invited to join fellow word aficionados for an evening of writing, critique, review, sharing and camaraderie.

Over the course of two hours, we will present respectful and encouraging critique of submitted work, and each writer will have an opportunity to share their current projects, writing challenges, and literary successes.

We will also read our always creative, often exciting, personal interpretations of this month’s prompt. Please be sure to use the following words in your piece, which is capped at 500 words:

Factitious –
Enhance –
Excruciating –

We look forward to seeing you in Harrison this fourth Wednesday of the month – February 28th – and will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Simply email, text or leave a voice message, and we’ll get back to you promptly!






Heading to Harrison!

WHO is WordWrites Guild and WHY should I attend a meeting?

WordWrites Guild is a gathering of all kinds of writers. One member is a published author of children’s books, another contributes to equestrian publications, and yet another writes features and the occasional news story for a regional newspaper. There are also poets and short-short story writers. Some members have never been published but hope to see their work in print one day, and some members simply enjoy writing just for themselves. WWG members include life-long writers, those who are new to writing, and a few who are returning to it after a long absence.

On any given evening, you might meet one or all of these friendly, welcoming wordsmiths. If you are interested in the written word, WWG is interested in meeting you! By attending a meeting, you will have ample opportunity to share ideas, writing projects, questions, challenges, successes and all things writing in a supportive, positive and respectful environment.

Please contact WWG for more information – or just stop by the next meeting in Lawrenceburg, Indiana or Harrison, Ohio!


Thank You …

… for taking the time to participate in our recent survey, and for your interest in WordWrites Guild. Although the Community Connections survey has closed, we look forward to sharing ideas, suggestions and answering questions at upcoming WordWrites Guild meetings and events.

Your input matters, and already changes are underway to better meet the needs of area writers. Please plan to attend the next WWG meeting on February 8th in the Depot Room at Lawrenceburg Public Library from 6:00pm until 8:00pm to learn more.

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.


Just a Reminder …
