Write Club:
Oskaloosa Area Writers

Oskaloosa Write Club is for writers of all sorts in Oskaloosa, Mahaska County, and the surrounding area, including nearby towns and counties. Novelists. Playwrights. Short Story Writers. Screenwriters. Poets. Essayists. All wordsmiths (aspiring and seasoned) are welcome!

We believe that you have a story in you. (Or a cookbook. Or a bunch of haikus.)

We believe in the power of creativity, coffee, and comradery.

 

We believe—in the timeless words of Ernest Hemingway and Jodi Picoult—that "the first draft of anything is shit" and that "you can't edit a blank page." 

We believe that something magical happens when you gather a group of writers in a room, hit a timer, and write for thirty minutes.

Whether you're a seasoned scribe working on your years-in-the-making masterpiece or a novice trying to put your idea to paper...

 

Whether you want to write fantasy, historical fiction, love stories, poetry, memoir, song lyrics, thank you notes, or essays...

 

We cannot wait to meet you and type (or scrawl) alongside you.

Curious? Read our club rules, check out the FAQs, attend our next Write Club, or follow us on Facebook.
