The Kenosha Writers’ Guild is a free group, held in Kenosha, open to anyone with an interest in writing.  Our members are from southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois.

Through workshops and meetings, the KWG offers its members a welcoming community and the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence as a writer.

Our members range from published authors to new writers or those who write simply because they enjoy doing so. Their work covers many genres: fiction, non-fiction, children’s literature, poetry, short stories, novels, erotica, feature articles and more.

Main Meetings

We meet at 6:30 pm, on the third Thursday of every month.

Due to the need for social distancing, we will meet virtually on Zoom until further notice.

Our main focus is on creating a welcoming space for writers to gather together to share their work and be part of a congenial writing community. At the meetings we share our work with the group, offer friendly and constructive critiques, and discuss anything and everything about writing.

Workshop Meetings

Workshop meetings are temporarily on pause due to the pandemic. In-depth critiques will be held monthly via Zoom until further notice.

On the second Thursday of the month, we alternate free workshops, in-depth critiques, or discussions to develop our writing skills. Workshops vary in content and may be led by an existing member of the group or a guest speaker. Check the News page for information about the next workshop topic or view our KWG critique guidelines.
