Next Meetup

If you’ve just finished a story and you need some feedback or if you’ve been wanting to come to meetings forever and are just curious to see what your fellow writers are up to, The Writers Group is for you. Each member will share their work in a friendly, low-stakes environment where everyone understands the hurdles of writing. As a reader, you’ll get an immediate response to your work and be able to ask focused questions of the group. In the group, you’ll get to see what your fellow writers have been up to and improve your own writing by analyzing others’ work. More than that, it’s an opportunity to get to know your fellow writers better! Writers will be scheduled primarily on a first-come, first-served basis to read their pieces. Please keep pieces under "5-7 minutes" to give everyone a chance to read. *** PLEASE NOTE: The Writers Group Will Be Meeting @ the Akron Kenmore Library.

    What we're about

    The Writers Group is a group dedicated to helping and encouraging writers (18+) of all levels, and genres in pursuing their dreams of becoming published writers.

    We offer positive feedback and methods in helping to make sure that your first steps into writing are positive ones, while for the more experienced writers we offer substantive critiques to help sharpen your work on its way to submission for publication.

    We have many writers who have professional credits to their name from many publishing houses, whether they are poems, short stories or full-length novels. We also have writers who have literary representation. With this large swath of experience, The Writers Group can offer you guidance to reaching your goals.

    "Do not say harmful things, but say what people need; words that will help others become stronger." -Ephesians 4:29
