Welcome to the Klamath Writers' Guild website. Although our site continues to evolve the links to the left are active. Be sure to check our Calendar for the latest on our 2017 meeting schedule! Select The Guild to find out about our group, how to become a member or what meetings you can attend as a guest. When you attend a meeting here is what you'll discover.
Members of the Guild consist of published and unpublished writers who support each other in the craft of writing. Individuals who are just exploring their desire to write will find guidance and experienced writers will receive the honest critique we all want before sending off our work to an agent or publisher. This diverse group includes novelists, screenwriters, poets, song writers, journalist, and editors. From short stories to epic novels the meetings provide opportunities for all genres. Attend a meeting and you could hear everything from poetry or a musician offering his latest song, to young adult novels, science fiction, fantasy, or real life stories just to name a few of the works being presented for critique at the time of this posting.
The Klamath Writers' Guild will be holding our meetings in the Houston Building at 403 Main Street, downtown Klamath Falls. The Building is owned by Debra Gisriel, CEO of Fisher Nicholson Realty, LLC. Debra is a writer and a member of the Guild who has graciously offered meeting space in her building after the County Commissioners sold the town's community meeting space.
The Klamath Writers' Guild is grateful for Debra and Fisher Nicholson Realty's support in providing space for our non-profit group.
The Klamath Writers' Guild is seeking stories. The theme is "Immigration." We'll be accepting stories under 10,000 words (short-stories, flash fiction, micro-fiction, poems, and essays). This is open to all writers. Stories will be published in the Klamath Writers' Guild newsletter and posted on this website. All submissions must be original work by the author offering the story for publication. If a story is accepted the author will be notified by email. Writers who are not members of the Guild may submit their stories through our Contact Us or Email links to the left.
