Writers Interest Group

Everyone has a different idea on how to preserve and share their research.  The format doesn't matter, we're here to help.

The Writers Group is unique in that we don't have speakers.  Rather, we choose pertinent topics for discussion and share what we're working on.  As our 2022 Prompt Challenge draws to a close, we'll be discussing our writing plan for 2023 at our December meeting.

The Writers Group currently meets at 7pm on the first Thursday of every month.  

Questions?  Please contact Laurie Bauer at writersgroup@nyrgs.org
