Hello,

Welcome to the Write Group blog. Enjoy your visit and take your time perusing our posts and pages.

The Write GroupThe Write Group is a community of writers who mutually share and discuss our poems, stories, novels, essays, columns, articles, histories and memoirs. We are essentially storytellers and storymakers. Between meetings we write; sometimes, we also work at day jobs, enjoy our leisure and spend time with our families.

This blog is our attempt to reach out to our members and the public. We offer prompts, competitions, market information, events local and specific to us, our newsletter, our Write Group Daily newspaper, our member posts, our Twitter feed, and other material and resources.

If you are interested in what we are doing this month, check out our monthly roundup page. As with most parts of this blog, this page is continuously being greened.

We love feedback. If you have comments or questions about our blog that don’t fit a specific post or page, please connect with us through our guestbook.

Come join us. See what we have to offer and partake of the resources we gather. Most of all,

Enjoy and keep writing,
The Write Group

The Write Group Anthology (proposed May 2016)

Would you be interested in creating a Write Group Anthology next year?

The Writers Foundation of Strathcona County did this and found it to be a great community building activity. This is their blurb describing the challenge:

“Although this book targets writers, everyone will enjoy this collection of stories and poems from 17 authors as they explore their creativity and respond to 20 different writing prompts. It displays the diversity that exists among writers even when prompted by the same written inspiration. Go on – give it a try!”

The challenge is suitably called the Writing Prompt Journey — Take the Challenge.

Essentially, next year we respond to ten writing prompts or sets of prompts. We edit and revise these responses, then submit and anthologize them or some of them. There are 25 of us. If we each contribute about five pages, we will get a 125 page book.
