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.

Best of Intentions

Leave a comment

We’ve all experienced it – done a favor or received a favor, but something didn’t go quite right or turn out as expected. And there are always the other kinds of favors – party favor, approval favor, preference favor, etc. that come to mind, as well.

This week’s prompt might open the door to a comedic adventure or a tragic end. It’s up to you as you craft a 500 word or less version of …

A favor goes wrong

Join your fellow wordsmiths and favor-doers at the next WordWrites Guild meeting at the Lawrenceburg Public Library on Thursday, July 27th at 6:00pm.

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!

Grab an Umbrella, Don the Galoshes!

This soggy prompt might open up a watershed of ideas:

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!

Sharpen the Pencil, Smooth the Paper

Leave a comment

You are more than welcome to share your talents, questions, works-in-progress, or simply a love of words with fellow wordsmiths at this week’s WordWrites Guild meeting at 6:00pm at the Lawrenceburg Public Library. We will be reading our literary homework based upon the following assignment:

  • a former child star
  • the last day of school

You might be surprised, entertained; even moved, by the varied and personal writing that has been inspired by one set of prompts. It’s like recess for words!
