What we're about
Rochester Writers serves new, working and published writers. We promote writing groups, conferences, and workshops in Michigan. The network includes authors and novelists, journalists and reporters, poets, songwriters, and bloggers. We welcome fiction and non-fiction writers. Our signature event is the Rochester Writers' Conference in October at Oakland University, in the heart of Southeast Michigan. The conference attracts attendees from several states and Canada.
Rochester Writers hosts the Freelance Marketplace Writers' Group. It meets on the third Tuesday of the month at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Rochester Hills at 7:30 p.m. to Discuss the Business of Writing. Our Spring Conference will have a main theme (Story Structure 2014, Social Media 2015) each year. While our Fall conference is a general writers' event with workshops, lectures and panel discussions for fiction, non-fiction and business concepts. With a diverse community of speakers, Rochester Writers hosts special workshops and events for venues, such as public libraries, around the area. Professional development presentations are available.
Rochester Writers also hosts writing contests throughout the year. A nominal fee to enter with prizes and recognition. Several categories to choose from. If you're an author, freelance journalist, blogger, poet, songwriter, etc. and you want to tune your craft, promote your talent, and sell your work, please join us for one of our many events.
