Fox Valley Writers Group

Fox Valley Writers is a community dedicated to the idea of helping writers of all skill levels connect and grow with one another. Often cited as the writers’ group for those who don’t care for traditional writing groups, we use a combination of imaginative exercises, personal attention to each author’s needs, and positive, constructive feedback from peers to empower ourselves to create and share our best stories, memoirs, essays, and poetry. Our hybrid meetings are simultaneously in-person and live on Zoom. Membership is free. Regular attendance is encouraged, but not required. If you’re looking for a relaxed group where you can develop your skills and network with other local authors at your own pace, this is the place for you!
