Westside Writers' Group of Eugene

Get your writing on!

           Come and Write with Us!

 

Writing can be a lonely and frustrating pursuit…

but it does not need to be!

 

The goals of the Westside Writers Group are

to support and encourage each other

in our efforts to find our voices

and to get them into publishable form!

 

We are a small group that meets

bi-monthly to share our work.

 

We focus on wordsmithing and storytelling and all

the various aspects of fiction writing, writing well,

and enjoying writing. We welcome writers of fiction

of all ilks: novels, flash fiction, fantasy, science fiction,

even memoir and creative non-fiction.

 

Do you have a novel inside you that is just

bustin' to come out? Or a story that has already

busted out and just needs some taming? Or just

a burning desire to buckle down and get some

serious work done on a current project?

Consider joining us!
