What we're about

Michigan Writers is for new writers, working journalists, and published authors of fiction and non-fiction work. Illustrators and photographers are welcome. This group will feature large events, contests, and conferences in Michigan for writers of all levels. Many such events may have a registration fee and a sign-up process through their own means - a simply RSVP here does not register you for their event. However, Michigan Writers Meetup Group will only post vetted events and organizations, with links directly to the source.
