The next meeting of the Green Bay Area Writers Guild is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5th. Guests are always welcome to attend our meetings. We meet at the Bay Family Restaurant, 1301 S. Military Avenue in Green Bay on the first Tuesday of the month unless it conflicts with a holiday.
We plan on meeting at Bay Family Restaurant through December 2023 when we will consider a potential move to a larger space. We meet in the back conference room by the hotel check-in desk
Guild meetings begin at 5:30 and last until 7:30 but you can come early to order food and eat with other guests and members ahead of the meeting. Our goal is to help members learn more about writing, 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 appreciate Julie C. Hancock—Your Virtual Advocate–answering our questions about copyright laws and other topics at the September Guild meeting. Thanks, Julie! We had a great turnout, thanks to Dorothy Seehausen who has graciously offered to lead the Guild through the next few months.
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.
