We will meet in the East Conference Room From 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
We normally hold meetings at The Carol Stream Public Library at 616 Hiawatha Drive, Carol Stream, Illinois 60188. The Carol Stream Library is currently undergoing renovations.
We encourage you to participate by bringing in ten typewritten copies of a one to three page excerpt of your current work. You will then be asked read aloud your writing to our group. The rest of us will write critiques that include encouragements, comments, and suggestions on those copies. We then share our thoughts about what you had written. I myself find it helpful to hear and later refer to what other people have thought about something I am working on. I find it a way I can grow with my writing.
DuPage Writers Group is a vibrant non-profit writing group that meets monthly to nurture the potential of writers at all levels. We are dedicated to encouraging each writers creative voice in a welcome and constructive atmosphere.
DuPage Writers Group also produces the journal POSSIBILITIES on an annual basis. Submissions are accepted with a paid membership and is an established outlet for new and established writers to publish their latest work. A free copy of the journal is included with an annual membership ($30).
The deadline for submissions to the 2019 POSSIBILITIES journal was March 17, 2019. The theme for the 2019 journal was “Garden.” This theme was chosen in honor of one of our first members, Michele Bowers, who recently passed away. She was an avid gardener with a great appreciation of life. She was a beautiful person and a gifted writer. Submissions are open to DuPage Writers Group members who have paid their annual membership fee. For submitting to the journal and for paying your membership fees please contact Rose Calkins.
The deadline for submissions to the 2020 POSSIBILITIES journal will be March 1, 2020. We are considering having Joy and Laughter as our theme.
