What we're about

We gather to share writing, offer peer feedback, and discuss the thrills and challenges of writing. Meetings include workshops, write-in meetings, community events, and happy hours. We hold meetings several times per month in Salem and Beverly. Writers in all genres are welcome.

Curious what we've been up to? We've been profiled in North Shore magazine and in the Peabody Essex Museum blog, which published our pieces on PEM's Lunar Attraction exhibit. We also hosted a three-part series of events at the House of Seven Gables, including a very popular "Hawthorne 101 and Photo Hunt" event. You can also find us onFacebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/witchcitywriters/).
