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 6.30pm, on the third Thursday of every month at Carthage College, 2001 Alford Park Drive, Kenosha Wisconsin.

At the meetings we read our work to the group, offer friendly and constructive critiques to each other and discuss anything and everything about writing. All this while enjoying coffee and lively conversation!

Workshop Meetings

On the second Thursday of the month, we now offer a free workshop, in-depth critique session or discussion 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.
