The Heartland Writers Guild functions as an organization dedicated to education
and the promotion of professionalism in published and unpublished writers.
The Guild provides encouragement and instruction through exclusive online
access, monthly meetings, workshops, and writers
that bring writers throughout the country together with professionals from
New York publishing houses and literary agencies.
The Guild is committed to the goal of helping all members successfully
market what they write. We strive to provide quality programs each month
conducted by published authors, teachers, or other persons with expertise
in writing-related fields.
In addition, many meetings
offer Q&A sessions
during which members may ask questions and receive answers based on the
varied experiences of
their fellow writers.
Our monthly newsletter, the Heartland Writers Journal, keeps Guild members
abreast of industry trends, upcoming workshops and conferences, monthly
meeting topics, markets, membership information, member publication news,
book signings, and writing tips.
Other membership benefits include discounts for Guild workshops and Guild conferences.
Officers are elected each December, and our workshops and conferences are
guided by a Steering Committee. Every member of the Guild is encouraged
to volunteer, to attend business and committee meetings, to freely express
opinions and to enter his or her name into consideration for offices and
committee membership. We welcome the active participation of all our members
-- old and new.
