Welcome to the Klamath Writers' Guild website. Although our site continues to evolve the links to the left are active. Be sure to check our Calendar for the latest on our 2013 meeting schedule! Select The Guild to find out about our group, how to become a member or what meetings you can attend as a guest. When you attend a meeting here is what you'll discover.
Members of the Guild consist of published and unpublished writers who support each other in the craft of writing. Individuals who are just exploring their desire to write will find guidance and experienced writers will receive the honest critique we all want before sending off our work to an agent or publisher. This diverse group includes novelists, screenwriters, poets, song writers, journalist, and editors. From short stories to epic novels the meetings provide opportunities for all genres. Attend a meeting and you could hear everything from poetry or a musician offering his latest song, to young adult novels, science fiction, fantasy, or real life stories just to name a few of the works being presented for critique at the time of this posting.
Open Meeting Dates for March are the 10th, and 24th. See our Calendar link to the left for location and time.

Alex Gosselink: i bought this book and finished it in one sitting it a very good first book in my opinion, you have no idea how hard it is to find a good fantasy book that doesn't pander to kids or make me feel the main character is just getting dumped on. in this book the main character goes through a lot but it doesn't seem forced and he actually struggles to do what he believes I love it makes it feel more real to me
Rhonda: Tameron is a very tortured hero in this story. He is required, at a young age, to make some difficult decisions just so he can stay alive. This is a fast paced sega with some very interesting charaters. I recommend you allow yourself time to read this because you will be completely absorbed. It was difficult to put down so I could go to bed. I am looking forward to the sequel!
