​​​2024 Programs:

April 25, 2024:  Burgess "Bird" Heslep Thomas has been involved in the Abilene art scene since 1999. Even if you don't know her personally, you have likely seen her around Abilene's monthly ArtWalk and The Center for Contemporary Arts or other art events around town.

She calls herself a Creator/Curator/Chronicler.  

Join us as she shares her interests and what she is chronicling at the moment!

May 23, 2024: Join us a members and guests are invited to read/share some of their writing with everyone.  It is always such a pleasure to learn and hear the diversity of our writers!

June 27, 2024:  Get ready to meet Leilani Carrasco. Though Leilani is a Hawaiian name, she is actually a New Mexico native. She loathes cliches but overindulges in the use of the word "so" to the detriment of her linguistic integrity.

The title of her program is: Write Like A Middle Child: How to Command Your Reader's Attention

Come learn more about her at the meeting!

Monthly Meetings


Objectives:   To study methods of writing and research,
      To develop our talents as writers,

The Abilene Writers Guild will celebrate its 55h anniversary in May 2024!  

We look forward to seeing you at our future meetings!  AWG desires to present interesting, informative, fun meetings where anyone can learn more about writing.
