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

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 ranging from fledgeling writers to published authors with a growing backlog of titles.

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 !

In mid-January NYC playwright and screen and television writer Daniel Goldfarb lectured and shared tips on the trade, in a highly successful GWG guest instructor slot at the Press Club.  The critiquing for Offshoots 13 handled by Caroline on the same weekend went very well also .

On February 7th and 8th, GWG member and guest instructor Carmen Bugan will share her gifts with us.  To work with this author of House of StrawCrossing the Carpathians, and the Picador published memoir Burying the Typewriter, be sure to sign up with Katie at gwg.workshops@gmail.com.
