What a great thing to do! Hopefully this helps many writers who feel like they are all alone somewhere in greater Minnesota. Perhaps there are even more writing groups that others would inform us about in a comment. We welcome your thoughts!

Are there any writer’s groups in the Saint Cloud Area?

    Hi Marc,

    We’ve checked around and it doesn’t look like there are any in the St. Cloud area that are still up and running. The closest was the Sauk Centre Gopher Prairie Writers’ Group. If you find there isn’t one, you might want to consider starting a new group or joining us up this way. We have writers from all over the state who are members. Hope that was helpful!
