Members Information

The Newfoundland Writers Guild was established to help writers develop their writing skills in a workshop setting. It is open to writers at all levels. The Guild holds monthly workshops and two annual writing retreats. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the NWG may attend up to two workshops before joining. Only members may present their work to be critiqued at a workshop. Newcomers are encouraged to observe at first but may offer their critique of the works of others should they wish. Before attending or participating in further workshops guests are invited to pay the annual fee, which is at present $25.00. Thereafter, fees are payable at the time of the Annual General Meeting, usually held in October. If fees are not paid by the January workshop, ones membership is no longer considered valid. Members of the Board of the Guild must be members in good standing.
