Writing Groups

We know how hard it can be to find like minded writers, we’ve been there. Here’s a list of writing groups that you will find in the region. Please check back often as we are continuously adding groups as they come to our attention. Have a group you’d like to add? No problem, just send us an email!

BADEN STORYTELLERS

The Baden Storytellers’ Guild in Waterloo is dedicated to nurturing and sustaining the development of emerging and established storytellers. The Guild seeks to promote excellence in our art, deepen our understanding of Story, and develop in the general public an awareness of and appreciation for storytelling, both in daily life and as a performance art.

NANOWRIMO – LOCAL CHAPTER

National Novel Writing Month is an annual Internet-based creative writing project that takes place during the month of November. Participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript between November 1 and November 30. Well-known authors write “pep-talks” to keep them motivated throughout the process.

The regional group will be writing together through April using this chat forum. If you have a NaNoWriMo account and would like to join us, please contact the ML. All we need is your NaNoWriMo username to add you to the group. This forum is for Region of Waterloo writers only, but anyone with a NaNoWriMo profile can create their own group.

QUATRE A SIX

All local writers of all levels from professional to “I’ve always wanted to write” are welcome to join us on the third Thursday of the month at Seven Shores from four until six p.m. You can write, socialize with other writers, drink good coffee and eat snacks, or any combination.
