Meet our Members

Writing is often an isolating experience. That’s why it can be helpful to meet with others who share your writing interests to exchange ideas and resources.

Since 1984, the Monadnock Writers’ Group has provided fellowship and support to writers in all genres and at all levels of achievement. Our free monthly speaker series brings a variety of accomplished writers to Peterborough to share their experiences and expertise with members. These speakers address a range of genres—fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, journalism and more—from research and planning through publishing. Occasionally, panel discussions take the place of a speaker.

Our goal is to bring writers together in a friendly, informal environment. We also help raise awareness of the literary talent in the Monadnock Region and promote reading and publishing opportunities for local writers.

It’s easy to join!

Membership is open to any writer seeking inspiration for their work through fellowship with other writers and encouragement from visiting professionals.

Membership benefits include our newsletter, The Quill, and the opportunity to read your writing at our meetings, among others.
