Join the Writing Journey

The Writing Journey is a community of writers and creators, most of whom are in the western suburbs of Chicago although others are in Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and beyond.

Most of our events are virtual (or offered in a hybrid in-person/virtual mode). If you’re looking for a welcoming writers’ group with many Paths to explore, the Journey may be for you.  Read more about the Journey. Our Paths include anthologies, critiquing, editing/accountability, workshops, and much more. We’re also open to ideas for new Paths.

To join the Writing Journey, begin by filling out this form: writingjourney.org/join  (membership in the Writing Journey is free).
