The writer's group held its first meeting in 1973 at what was then Brenau College. Members meet monthly with the goal of improving their writing skills. The group also hosts an annual competition and regular conferences.

This month's conference is open to the public, but pre-registration is required. The cost is $25 for nonmembers.

If you are interested in attending, you must mail in your payment a week before the event, as registration is not available at the door.
