Monthly Writers’ Group Meetings

Monthly meetings are free of cost and open to the public, and are held at the Peterborough Town Library.

Meetings begin at 9:45 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month from September through June, except for May which is held on the second Saturday in deference to Children and the Arts.

Meetings usually last until 11:45 a.m.

Meeting Format

A typical agenda features informal mingling over member-provided refreshments, a call to order, group introductions, brief announcements, our 10-minute reader, and the featured guest speaker.

Past speakers have included journalists, novelists and short-story writers, copyright lawyers, editors and publishers, poets, and children’s authors. A question and answer period follows each presentation, leading to a spirited exchange of ideas. Occasionally, panel discussions take the place of a speaker.

There are read-arounds held twice a year, in December and June, at which members share their short works in a non-judgmental, supportive environment.

Occasionally, events are held at other locations, providing an opportunity for workshops and public readings.

Notice of meeting cancellation due to weather is posted on our Web site.
