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.   

While AWG operates on a limited budget, our speakers receive a small honorarium and a one-year membership.  We also have specific monthly meeting dates and times for which speakers must be available.

​Visitors are always welcome!

Monthly Meetings


No meeting in December.  Merry Christmas to all!!

2024 Programs:

January:  Our own Ron Davis will lead us in table discussions about goal-setting for writers, and encouraging each other as writers.  We'll get to know each other better at this meeting and who knows what you might gain as far as your own personal goals toward writing!  Come ready to participate.

February:  Chuck Webber, another of AWG's own, will lead us in some hands-on exercises to aid us in our creativity.  The title of his program is "Do It Anyway!"  Well, okay then.  Come take part in this fun, interactive meeting based off a workshop Chuck attended in early fall.  He enjoyed it so much he wanted to share it with all of us!

March: Mark your calendar now for March 23, 2024, at 8:30 am at First Baptist Church dining room, N. 2nd and Hickory downtown.  More information under Workshop tab above.

Our dual speakers will present a hands-on Workshop that should provide fun and encouragement to beginning as well as seasoned writers.
