Welcome to Green Bay (WI) Area Writer’s Guild

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

Meetings begin at 5:30 p.m. and wrap up around 7:30 p.m. before the library closes at 8:00. Come early to socialize!

Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 and will be held in the Board Room on the second floor of the library. We welcome guests and encourage 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!

We had 12 members and three guests attend our February meeting. Information was shared about podcasts and websites beneficial to writers. Six members read excerpts of their work and received comments.

Guild Meeting Dates in 2020: March 3rd, April 7th, May 5th, June 2nd, July 7th, August 4th, September 1st, October 6th, November 3rd, and December 1st.

Guild members visit with author Jacob Appel at Untitled Town 2019. With Jacob (holding his book) are (from left) Larry Wilson, Debbie Delvaux and Russ Husnik.

Member H.G. Watts grabbed this shot before Jacob Appel’s presentation at Untitled Town 2019 about crafting distinctive dialogue.  He’s shown here holding his newest book — Millard Salter’s Last Day.  Not only did Appel deliver a program that was interesting and informative, he gave copies of a previous book — The Liars Asylum — to some of the early birds in the audience…including the three smiling Guild members shown here with the author-presenter.
We have submitted proposals to Untitled Town 2020 and encourage readers and writers to watch for news about the 2020 event.

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.

Meeting dates may change if the 1st Tuesday lands on a holiday.

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.
