Welcome to the Green Bay (Wisconsin) Area Writer’s Guild

Due to the opening of the Brown County Library still to be determined, the Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild’s next meeting on July 7th may be held virtually again. If that is the case, members will receive the link to attend via E-mail.

Since we have gone virtual with Guild meetings, we wanted to share screen shots from our May meeting so you can see some of our writers (above).

Come back for the latest updates.  In the meantime, check out our blog posts.

Breaking (Broken) News: Due to the “community spread potential” of the Corona virus, the Untitled Town 2020 Book & Author Festival has been postponed! Organizers are hoping to resurrect the event later this year.

The Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild (gbwriters.com) normally meets in the evening on the 1st Tuesday of every month at the Brown County Central Library in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Green Bay Area Writers Guild welcomes guests and encourages sharing written pieces to receive feedback…if you’d like it. We just need to know what type of feedback you want. We try to limit readings to five minutes to give as many members a chance to participate. Check us out!

Guild Meeting Dates in 2020: July 7th, August 4th, September 1st, October 6th, November 3rd, and December 1st.

Meetings are open to visitors. Anyone is welcome to attend. There are no membership fees, but if you become involved and want to be included on this website, contributions are accepted.

What happens at the meeting is members and guests share good news, i.e. books being published or signing with an agent, etc. There may be sharing of the previous month’s writing exercise, but our main activity is reading what we’ve written and getting feedback from other writers in the guild. Positive critiques preferred.

If you’re interested in learning more, please attend one of our meetings.

Jade Ring Contest–Deadline is June 5th: The Wisconsin Writers Association sponsors the annual Jade Ring competition for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. There are entry fees but they’re worth it.

 

If you have information about writing competitions or special programs, let us know and we’ll put it here.
