What we're about

Round Rock Writers' Guild is a collective of writers that gathers regularly to write, talk about writing, and support one another. Prior to COVID-19 we met at a local coffee shop. With the advent of the pandemic we moved online, and now have members from far and wide. We have returned to some in-person meeting options, generally at a coffee shop in Round Rock, but maintain online options for all meetings, and some are still exclusively online. We foresee maintaining our online presence indefinitely.

Our group is open to any genre or style. We only require that members be respectful toward each other and the work being presented. We encourage honest critique and open-minded discussion. In addition to this Meet-Up, we provide a Discord server where we share files for critique, share links, and converse between meetings.

Quarantine and the pandemic have limited the amount of time we've had to just hang out and be supportive of one another. Thursday nights are a time to socialize and check in with each other.

Pour yourself a beverage, make yourself a snack, and come hang out with us. Talk about your current project (or lack thereof), work through any pesky plot problems, bounce ideas off of the group, and generally just touch base with other writers.

If you’re interested in meeting in person, check here to see if Kathrine and the In Person Crowd are meeting at the Black Rock Coffee on Hwy 620 in Round Rock. They meet to chat a bit and then get some writing time in.

In person or online, you’re always welcome!

Using various writing prompts, we'll write, share, and discuss our work. We'll use exercises that are appropriate for fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

Bring whatever you use to write with, and be ready for those creative juices to start flowing. If you have any writing exercises that you'd like to try, please feel free to let me know.

A group member will provide prompts and facilitate the meeting. (If you are interested in taking on this roll in the future, please let us know!)
