We are writers of all genres and experience continually learning from each other as we grow as writers. Some of us write long, involved pieces and some write short, to-the-point pieces. Our tools range from notebooks to Word documents to hastily composed pieces on the margins of paper while in flight. It’s all good.
WWG MISSION: To offer an open and encouraging environment in which to share, read, discuss and celebrate our work. We are serious about our work but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’re respectful, curious, supportive and – most of all – have fun with our writing.
We began meeting in 2014, and each year we have steadily increased in numbers. We always welcome new members no matter where you are in your writing.
Meetings usually last an hour, sometimes more when we’re on a roll. We read what we’re working on and the group gives encouraging praise and sometimes gentle suggestions. If you prefer not to read something every time that’s ok.
Lately we’ve been using writing prompts with great results. We’re always amazed at how our writing styles differ and how differently we interpret the prompts. This really gets our creative juices flowing.
In the winter of 2020, we put the finishing touches on our first-ever anthology and published! View from the Shore is a collection of stories, poems and the writing prompts that have inspired us over the years.
