Forest Grove Writing Group Forms

Westside Writers welcomes Washington County's newest writing group!

New Evening Writer’s Group Forming in Forest Grove

Forest Grove, OR. – C.J. Stuart will gather local writers at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge (3505 Pacific Ave.) at the main restaurant on May 29th at 6:45 p.m. We will continue to meet on the second and fourth Thursdays. There are no genre restrictions. At the first meeting we will introduce ourselves and discuss the main goals of the group.

Washington County Writer’s Mission is to provide an evening venue for adult writers that already have a novel or short story in progress. We want to share constructive critiques and motivational support for each other while building our skills and having fun. A good fit with one another is essential since decisions will be made by consensus.
Membership is limited therefore an application process of submitting an email of 500-1000 words is required. This is your chance to showcases your skills. Please also include your writing goals. Upon invitation attend the meeting. (Future meeting times and places are subject to change depending on the needs of the group.) 
We reserve the right to ask any member to leave if the group determines they are not a good fit. Writing can be a lonely road and we want to ensure everyone in the group gets to share and give feedback in a supportive environment.

C.J. Stuart has published poems and several articles and has been a member of various writers’ groups in the Northwest for many years. Her background is in art and anthropology.
