Green Bay Area


The Green Bay Area Writers Guild meets next on Tuesday, May 7th, 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.

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

Did you know? The Green Bay Area Writer’s Guild first met in September of 2013. We’re celebrating 10 + years!

Writing prompt: Describe how you would survive if your car broke down in a blizzard and you didn’t have a smart phone…in 300 words or less.

Check out the posts on our blog page. A funny post about writing is scheduled to go live April 4th.

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: May 7th, June 4th, July 2nd, 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 pecial programs, let us know and we will post it here.
