The Abilene Writers Guild  quietly celebrated its 52nd birthday in May 2021!  It was quiet only because Covid still had meeting places shut down.

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.  Contact Program Chair Sharon Ellison at

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.

Sharon would like to hear from you if you if you have a writing-related subject or question which might turn into a good program!

2021 Meetings

Monthly Meetings


AWG will resume meeting at Rose Park Sr. Center in Abilene on Thursday, June 24, 2021, at 7 pm!  

Normally, in May AWG celebrates its birthday and elects several new Board members.  (Aren't we all looking forward to "normal" again??)

We are scooting the celebration and election into June this year, so after announcements, elections and any other business, we will invite members and guests to read some of their writing to the group.

You will have three (3) minutes for your presentation.  Bring a couple of things to read in case we have time.  It all depends on how many attend and how many want to read their writing.  We will try to end around 8:30. 

​We hope to see YOU!!

Some of you have asked the question: "What is a query letter?"  Sharon Ellison will present a program about just that, including why you do them and how to do them.  She will also tell you what NOT to do or say in a query letter.
