Story (

By loose definition, these are groups who charge an annual membership fee and/or charge per-session for events held year-round. There are also many writing groups in our area, but these are the main ones that offer public events, and guest speakers,  Some national organizations such as have local chapters. There are many powerful and rewarding online writing organization too. One I belong to is Small Publishers, Artists & Writers Network at I also recommend all writers join the free online groups: and  Take a look at them and see what you're missing.

If I missed a group you like, add it below by leaving a comment. Let's keep the Chicago-area a vibrant writing community.
By 2015, we'll welcome the new American Writer's Museum to Chicago as well.

See you online,
