Writing Groups


Chatham Writers @ 02633 meets every Monday (Mid-Sept through May) from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM to explore different writing genres.  Participants are encouraged to write a short piece of fiction or poetry each week to share with the group and receive guidance and feedback.  Each year they publish an anthology of their work.  If you would like to join this group, call Gerry McDowell at 508-945-1632.



The Chatham Poets Group meets every Wednesday from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM to read and share their work while offering gentle critiquing.  The only “rule” is that you can’t say anything bad about your own writing.  John Poignand, published poet and longtime student of Peter Saunder’s Poetry and Prose Learning Series course, will facilitate. Contact John Poignand at 774-810-0610 for details or more information.  Everyone is welcome.  This class will start January 9, 2019.



The Summer Fiction Writers Group will meet Thursdays, July 11 through September 12, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM .  The purpose of this group is to help writers improve their fiction writing through respectful and unconstrained critiques from fellow writers.  This group is limited to 8 members.  Please contact Joe DeRosa (781-799-5640) for more information or to sign up for the group. 


Every Friday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM the Chatham Memoirs Group meets.  Everyone can write about their own experiences, but do you need tips to make them interesting reading?  If you want to join this group, call John Poignand at 774-810-0610.
