The Incredible Things We've Done This Year

"People will forget what you said. They will forget what you did.  But they will never forget how you made them feel." – Maya Angelou

Dear Aspiring Authors & Motivated Writers,

“Building A Writing Community - One Book At A Time.”  We are so much more than a writer's group: we also are a cafe of many talents, and most importantly, a key gathering hub for the greater Akron community. Now in our fourth year, The Writers Group serves the diverse needs of our writing communities pursuing successful careers as published authors. The Writers Group supports both new and seasoned writers. Over a dozen writers from the group have professional credits to their name from many publishing houses and many of the writers also hold literary representation.

“For new writers, we extend positive feedback to encourage their first steps in writing and also teach best practices to enrich their literary creations. We constructivelky criticize as well as guide experienced writers to help them sharpen their works for publication."

After three years in the Akron Kenmore Library, The Writers Group grew from three members to over sixteen-hundred members. In order to accommodate the rapid expansion of the group we moved to downtown Akron. Moving to the new location required the lease of a 2,000 sq.ft. space with wi-fi services. All the expenses incurred were paid for by Kora Sadler and a few generous members.

We expanded to include a performance space where local musicians, actors, poets, writers, comedians, dancers, artists, and other performers could come to share their talents and passions. The Writers Group has also evolved to become a vital community gathering space known for fostering creativity, supporting activism, promoting free speech, and forging new relationships and friendships.

Here are just a few of the events that have a home in our space:

-Creative writing workshops including all-levels and all genres.
-Local author events featuring international best selling authors and others.
-Motivating Writers discussion groups.
-Self-publishing workshops.
-As part of  TWG support of literacy programs we giveaway new books to local children.
-All skill level music sessions featuring a broad range of styles.
-Blind date with a book event.
-Vision Board Party accompanied by good food, good drinks, and great fun.
-TWG mix & mingle networking event.
-A weekly open mic platform that encourages and supports participation from all members.
-What Will Carol Do Next? special events.
-Many more events to come!

We are confident in and excited about our future because of our broader, community focus. More importantly, we believe in the diverse communities who continue to keep The Writers Group flourishing.  Thank you for helping to create what makes The Writers Group so special to us and to others. For many, our center is a second home, and we want to keep our space open to all, our events no- or low-cost, for many more years to come. To achieve this, we are asking for your financial support in order to continue serving the community.

You Can Make A Difference!
