Academic & Professional
The Writers' Club at Grand Valley State University consists largely of student writers who do not study writing professionally. It is a designated time and place for students to convene once a week to discuss their writing and develop their ideas. All genres are present at Writers' Club, but most of our members write fiction and poetry.
In Winter Semester of 2009, we printed our first publication in many years. It is titled "Don't Open This." Our latest publication, titled "Running Out of Ink" can be found in the Writing Center and Writing Department office on Grand Valley's Allendale Campus. Submissions from both members and non-members are accepted and considered for publication. We are planning to release a publication annually, hopefully between the winter and spring break during Winter Semester.
All meetings are come and go as you please. We only ask that you do not make a lot of noise while someone is reading their piece. Also, you are not required to read or write at any meeting, but if you are comfortable, we would love to hear from you. We are very complimentary and would love to help you develop your ideas and your writing.
Every week, we have a joke, quote, or interesting fact about books or writing. Then we discuss official business, such as the publication, and present information about local readings or plays. People who are interested then share their writing, and if there is time left, there is a writing exercise. If you are bringing a piece to read, please bring copies (at least 6) of your piece to club. Doing this allows members to follow along and give you more adequate feedback and critques.
Club meets every Thursday @ 7PM in Kirkhof.
