What we’re about

We write. We share. We live.

Pen to Paper is Indy's most notorious coterie of misfit writers.

What We Do

In its simplest form, we write stuff, share it with each other, and talk about it. Of course, to organize this effort requires a few rules, a calendar, and a sextant. 

We critique each others written material and provide creative support, constructive criticism, and sage advice.

Who May Join

If you write, you may join. Hell, even if you don't write, give us a whirl, as long as you provide us with homemade cookies and lemonade.

We accept people at all skill levels, from the doe-eyed novice to the curmudgeonly expert.

If you want to write or improve your writing, then you've come to the right place.

We critique all manner of writing, be it fiction, non-fiction, poetry, travelogues, erotica, technical manuals ... if it has words, we'll read it.

So, You Want to Join

Follow these simple steps to initiate yourself into our mysteries:

1) Check out the Newbies page on our website at

2) Check out our guiding principles on our website at

3) Come to a meeting.

It's really that simple. For what are you waiting? An incorrectly placed preposition?

Note: It may appear from the RSVP's that attendance is sparse. That is not really the case. We've been around so long that members rarely RSVP anymore.
