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 !
Carmen Bugan led a memorable Saturday session on “Toning the Poem, Sound and Meaning“, with examples ranging from Wilfred Owen to Allan Ginsberg. Writers listened, laughed, worked in groups at times, and came away with much to work with and consider. Master Class on Sunday was full, and anyone with photos from that, we encourage you to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
