Where Writers Work Together

Danville, Pennsylvania--the home of Christopher Sholes, the inventor of the typewriter; the once-home of dime novelist Ned Buntline; and the setting for Song of Solomon, the novel by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison.  Our writers spring from an interesting past. 

Each month, Mill Street Writers Group provides a friendly community for writers.  Some of us have been published; some of us are working on it; and some of us simply like to write.  We read our work, offer supportive critique, share tips and pointers, compare rejection slips--and congratulate those who break into print!

Whether you want feedback about the setting for your latest story, the rhyme scheme of your poem, the vocabulary for a planned children's book, or the text of your query letter, join us on the first Friday of every month. 

Our multi-aged, multi-genre, and multi-talented group meets at That Bookstore in Danville from 7 p.m. until closing.  Come roll up your sleeves and work with us!
