The purpose of The Bowers House Writers Guild is to provide mentoring and instruction; share skills; offer kindly criticism; supply information on markets, contests, conferences and other areas of interest to members who write; and to be inspired and encouraged by fellow writers.

About The Bowers House Writers Guild

The Bowers House Writers Guild offers encouragement to local and visiting writers whose writing covers a range of genres: local and personal history, personal memoir, adult and juvenile poetry, book reviews, journalism, newspaper and magazine articles, short stories, essays, how-to books, fiction and non-fiction. The Guild provides members the opportunity to meet writers with similar interests, to meet together, to become good friends or to enjoy the company of friendly acquaintances.

A number of our Guild members are published writers. Some are self-published, others have materials accepted by publication houses; however, all of our writers are people who write because they want to. Not all of us want to become famous or even want to be published. We just want to express ourselves and become better writers.

Published or not, experienced or just beginning, we have the pleasure of being encouraged to write because we love to do it, and we learn to write better through the instruction, encouragement and suggestions we receive each time we get together.

Our meetings are held the Second Wednesday each month from 1 to 3 pm. We use a meeting room at The Bower House Writers’ Retreat 100 Depot St. Canon, GA. At meetings, a member or a special guest leads a discussion concerning some aspect of the Writer’s Craft, members exchange ideas, have the opportunity to read from their works and can ask for constructive suggestions.
