About MWG

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, blogging and more—from research and planning through publishing.

Our goal is to bring writers together in a friendly, informal environment. In addition to our monthly meetings, in normal times, we host a “Writers’ Night Out” the first Monday of each month at Brady’s American Grill, Peterborough, but sadly, this event is on hold due to COVID-19.  We hope to resume our Writers Night Out events soon–please watch for updates on our Facebook page, or subscribe  to our mailing list.

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. Our modest dues go directly to pay for meeting space, honoraria for guest speakers, and operating expenses.

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