The mission of Straw Dog Writers Guild is to support the writing community by strengthening, engaging and connecting writers at all levels of development.
We are a nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to the craft and transformative power of writing, designed to serve writers throughout the region by promoting individual growth, community outreach, and enrichment.
We accomplish this directly and through our members by offering:
- creative writing programs in multiple genres, including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and memoir;
- manuscript editing and revision referrals;
- literary salons with local authors and publishing professionals;
- outreach to under-served populations;
- a welcoming space for writers to gather and network.
