OUR NEXT MEETING:
Due to certain requirements our next Zoom Meeting will be held this coming Monday evening, October 17, 2022 at 6:30 pm. Rose Calkins will send our members emails containing the Zoom link and information on how to use it. We will be celebrating our 17th volume of our Possibilities Journal.
Normally we will be held, by Zoom, on the second Monday of the month, November 14, 2022 and December 12, 2022 and so on
Due to Health Concerns the DuPage Writers Group will not be holding any in person meetings until further notice.
If they begin in person hosting again our meetings will be as follows. I will update this website when I get the news.
Bartlett Public Library
800 South Bartlett Road
none as of this time.
We also used to hold meetings at The Carol Stream Public Library at 616 Hiawatha Drive, Carol Stream, Illinois 60188. When the Carol Stream Library was currently undergoing renovations, we temporarily switched to using the Bartlett Public Library. We are also currently not holding in person meetings at the Carol Stream Public Library due to health concerns.
When our meetings resume, 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.

The DuPage Writers Group is proud to announce the second volume of our Veterans Journal: “Honoring Our Veterans-Sharing Their Stories”. This journal contains the stories of military veterans from recent wars. The stories were written by various veterans themselves, their families, and their friends. These accounts are based on interviews and remembrance. Photos, poems, and drawings have been accepted to show that we honor these veterans’ lives, their contributions, and their healing and recovery process.
