Who are we?

Gaithersburg Creative Writers is a new and exciting group. In the first month, it attracted nearly 40 members. We are both accomplished and aspiring authors who want to help themselves and each other to be successful.

To date, our semi-weekly meetups have been held at happy hour time in places that provide the essentials for a happy hour (5:30 to 7:00 PM), although the noise level can be a bit higher than the ideal. We explore literature and writing, gently critique each other’s work and have a very good time.

Between meetings we keep in contact through this website and our Google group list. Some members post their work where other members can see it and critique it by email. Materials that will be submitted for publication are marked to be seen by members only and are on the ‘net for just a few days.

We welcome people who are also members of other writers groups and we maintain contact with city officials, especially those who organize the Annual Gaithersburg Book Fair.

We are your neighbors in Gaithersburg and near areas that are interested in creative writing. Please join our group if you are interested in creative writing. We also have a forum in Google at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gburgwriters. Please join to receive updates.

Our first two meetings on July 5 and 19, 2016 were well attended and we were all very satisfied with the content. We are planning meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of every month.
