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Members of the Guild consist of published and unpublished writers who support each other in the craft of writing.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 April are the 7th, and 21st.  See our Calendar link to the left for location and time.

           The Gift

In the midst of an occupied Land

And in the humblest of shelters,

God visited his people, silently, faithfully

 

In this season of commercial cacophony

As a madcap rushing fills our hours,

Quietly a man and a woman travel to their tribal home.

 

Their mission, amid a roiling census, is directly focused,

To a place, for an event, within their roots.

Go register your name, fulfill your destiny, come home. 

 

Life is not relative, no, it is relatives.

And, even for those estranged, God provides one.

Who can deny a newborn child, the gift of God?

 

Have we not known moments of joy,

When the darkness was dispelled by a single light?

Did we, then, give thanks to the spirit of Love?

 

He came, now comes and promises forever

To melt the hearts of stone, or ice or pain.

Companion for the traveler, lover to the lost.

 

Angels appear in the midst of chaos,

God intervenes when hope is gone,

A child often turns self into selfless

Thus, once again. . .for unto us a child is born

A child. . .of God.

                                       Ft. Bob Adams, 2007
