Green Bay Area


The Green Bay Area Writers Guild will meet next on Tuesday August 6th, 2024, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Bay Family Restaurant on the corner of Military Avenue and Ninth Street on Green Bay’s west side. Guests are always welcome.

The July meeting offered an exercise in critiquing one’s writing. There are educational elements at every meeting to help writers improve their work. Join us!

We gather in the back conference room by the hotel check-in desk and bathrooms. Meeting runs until 7:30 but come early to order food, eat, and mingle with other guests and members. 

The Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild first met in September of 2013. We’re celebrating more than 10 years!

Writing prompt: Think about your writing. Is it as good as it can be? Write, in 200 words, what you could do to improve it.

Check out the posts on our blog page.

Our goal is to help members learn more about writing, editing, publishing, legalities, marketing, public relations, and other aspects of publishing in today’s world.

After introductions and sharing good news–like having a new book coming out or being published in a magazine–we offer an educational segment covering a topic of importance to writers. Then we allow members and guests to share what they have written or are writing.

If you plan on attending and want to read, please let us know when the meeting begins. We ask you to limit a reading to five minutes and tell us what kind of feedback you would like. Feel free to ask questions of those attending to learn more about our craft. We have published authors among us and novice writers, so be bold and inquire.

We offer a critique page for members to evaluate the writing of other members. Use the link above for instructions.

The Guild welcomes new members and guests! Check out our blogs and feel free to submit one for consideration. They usually post on Thursdays…but not always.

2024 Guild Meetings: August 6th, September 3rd, October 1st, November 5th, and December 3rd.

There are no membership fees but if you become active and involved we will build a writer’s page for you. We merely ask for a voluntary contribution to cover the cost of website hosting. If you are interested, please attend one of our meetings.

If you have information about writing contests or special programs, let us know and we will post it here.
