What we're about
The Fort Wayne Writers Guild is devoted to celebrating the written word as an art form through the education, support, and promotion of writers connected to our region and by engaging with our communities through activities that spark interest in this compelling medium of self-discovery and expression.
We offer an intellectual, yet convivial community of encouragement, feedback, advice, and inspiration for writers of all skill levels and genres, through a variety of bi-weekly, monthly, and quarterly events in the Greater Fort Wayne area. Although most of our Member Writers live in the Indiana/Michigan/Ohio region, we've had some travel from as far away as St. Louis and Rochester, NY, to attend our alluring meetings, workshops, and get-togethers.
Writing is undeniably a fine art, possibly the most accessible and influential of all artistic media. Proficiency requires constant discipline and practice, a voracious appetite for learning, an open, flexible mind, and an ever evolving imagination. A thick skin helps, of course, but most of us weren't born with the hide of a rhino. A good writing group can give you the constructive criticism that all writers need to hear, in an environment that also heartens the emerging author within you.
If you're serious about improving your writing, about completing and possibly publishing your work, and enjoying the support, camaraderie, and friendship of fellow writers in the community, the Fort Wayne Writers Guild is the ideal group for you.
