The Guild is a group of individuals who love words and books of all kinds. There are a variety of artists, writers, editors, and readers in the group. The goal of the group is to encourage writers to have confidence in themselves and their writing abilities and to promote the desire to further develop their skills while promoting respect and enthusiasm for the written word.
St. Joseph Writers Guild generally meets at 1:00 p.m. the third Saturday of the month at Rolling Hills Library. During the meeting, there is either a guest speaker or a workshop on a variety of topics. Sometimes there are special events, including awards. In March, the group has a ceremony for the Jill Perkins Young Writers Contest, and in April there is a National Poetry Month Reading.
