Through monthly meetings from September through June, we offer fellowship and support to professional and novice writers alike. 


Writing is often an isolating experience. That’s why it can be helpful to meet with others who share your writing interests to exchange ideas and resources.

Since 1984, the Monadnock Writers’ Group (MWG) has provided fellowship and support to writers in all genres and at all levels of achievement. Our free monthly speaker series brings a variety of accomplished writers to Peterborough, NH to share their experiences and expertise with members. These speakers address a range of genres—fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, journalism and more—from research and planning through publishing. Occasionally, panel discussions take the place of a speaker. 

Our goal is to bring writers together in a friendly, informal environment. We also help raise awareness of the literary talent in the Monadnock Region and promote reading and publishing opportunities for local writers.
