PCWG is a non-organized group of writers who strive to foster the art of writing in others. We meet twice monthly on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 7PM until 9 PM, to discuss the business and craft of writing. Meetings are open to anyone wanting to improve their writing skills or learn how to make money from writing. Meetings are not restricted to writers (everyone is always welcome!). There are no dues and meeting attendance is not required to be considered a member of the Guild, all that is required is a valid email address and permission to add your address to our list. PCWG publishes The North Georgia Writer (TNGW) on a quarterly basis (January, April, July, October). The TNGW is free and can be found in any Paulding County Library, at Sylvan Learning Center, at the Paulding Fine Arts Association as well as at the Hiram Bookstore. PCWG was founded in 2007 by Dana Richard Freeman.

“Our mission at the Paulding County Writers’ Guild: (1) To promote writing in Paulding County, Georgia; (2) To encourage fellow writers to perfect their craft; (3) To share our writing with our community; (4) To critique the writing of fellow writers; (5) To advance the art of good writing.
Dedicated to encouraging everyone to be a writer, this website has been created for members of the Paulding County Writers’ Guild and friends.

If so, then this is the site for you!
Please tell us of your visit, pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of your favorite libation and feel free to post your writings in the file section if you would:
(a) like a critique before the next meeting or
(b) enjoy sharing your latest writing with someone.
Please feel free to browse our files (especially The North Georgia Writer (TNGW) – our quarterly publication), ask questions, or participate in the forum..
