MWG Chapters

The Missouri Writers’ Guild has chapters throughout the state. Chapters meet regularly for members to share writing tips and ideas, listen to presentations by successful authors, learn about various genres of writing, and network with other writers and editors. Some chapters also offer readings and critique groups. In addition, many chapters offer special programs, such as writing workshops, public readings, contests, and anthologies. Find your region, and feel free to email the contact person OR check out their website. If you have any issues or questions, please email the MWG Board at president@missouriwritersguild.org
