Welcome to the Geneva Writers’ Group: A Home for Writers from around the World

I still miss the group more than I can say.  It is the place where I first thought of myself as a writer, and that makes it a kind of home.”  – Bob Byrd

Geneva Writers meeting

A meeting of the Geneva Writers – at the Geneva Press Club

Started in 1993, The Geneva Writers’ Group brings together over 200 English language writers from close to 30 countries. We welcome this diversity of cultures.  Our objective is to encourage all forms of creative writing in English and to create a supportive community of both beginning and supportive writers.

Meetings are held monthly, from September to June at the Geneva Press Club, with a program of writing workshops, critiquing sessions, and master classes.  Every two years we hold the International Geneva Writers’ Conference at Webster University in Bellevue, alternating with a “Meet the Agents” weekend.  We publish a biennial collection of prose and poetry, Offshoots, Writing from Geneva. And we coordinate small writing groups, a mentoring service, and the GWG Literary Prizes.

Come join us !



Celebrating Susan’s 80th birthday at Webster University, refreshed by friends, champagne, and a cake homemade by Mary Pecaut.  The morning session was followed immediately by translations into English of CF Ramuz by Patti Marxsen and Michelle Bailat-Jones, and turnout for afternoon critiquing was excellent too.
