Welcome!

GLVWG is an all-genre writer's support organization. Writers of fiction or non-fiction, poets, journalists, essayists and playwrights will all benefit from a membership in GLVWG and all are welcome.


GLVWG meets 10 am to 12 noon, the 4th Saturday of the month except July, August, December and March. November of 2024 we will be meeting on the 3rd Saturday (the 16th) so as not to conflict with the Thanksgiving Day weekend.

The objectives of GLVWG are to provide its members with a network of support and resources in the field of writing; to act as central information point for all activities in the field of writing and the publishing industry; and to advance the writing interests of its members.
