Southeast Missouri Writers’ Guild is now in its 5th year as a chapter of Missouri Writers’ Guild. Spearheaded by Dr. Susan Swartwout, editor/publisher of Southeast Missouri University Press, and then-assistant editor, Donna Essner, they knew there was a need for writers in the Southeast Missouri area to join together as writers to network, encourage, and educate one another in this far-reaching world.
The guild holds monthly meetings from January-October and brings in speakers from all facets of the writing and publishing world. Members are writers in all genres and include published as well as newbies. All are welcome to join.Annual dues are $25.
Last year, SEMO WG joined forces with Heartland Writers Guild to promote the first All Write Now! conference, which was held in Cape Girardeau, MO. The conference was so successful, the guilds are planning the second AWN! conference to be held July 11, 2015 on the campus of Southeast Missouri University.
