About GFWG

The Glens Falls Writers Group
A diverse group of writers helping each other to get better at their craft.

Meetings 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month
Crandall Public Library, Glens Falls, NY from 7 – 9 p.m.

The GFWG is a critique-based writing group that meets twice each month to encourage writers to improve their skills and achieve their writing—and publishing—goals.

We are diverse in style, content, and experience, but remain united by our belief that honest feedback from determined writers breeds better writing. (Well, that and hours of rewriting!) Join us if you’re looking to take your writing further than you can alone.

The group was founded in 1997 when writers who attended a local weekend workshop wanted to continue getting together. They spread the word to other writers and met when they could at Crandall Public Library. By April 1998 the group solidified under the leadership of current moderator Kay Hafner and started meeting at LARAC, which was then located above Scoville Jewelers. They continued to meet monthly at LARAC through that organization’s move into its own building on City Park several years later, eventually adding a more informal morning group into the mix.

In 2009, night meetings moved to the newly renovated Crandall Public Library and were then expanded to include the first and third Thursdays of each month.

The morning group at LARAC eventually branched out on its own and became Joy of Writing, which still continues to meet there the first Thursday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon.

That’s who we are and where we’ve been. Go to the pages below to find out more about membership in the group and what critiquing is all about.

If you’re a writer who wants to give and get fair and honest feedback in a variety of writing by a diverse group of writers, join us twice a month at Crandall Public Library. We’d love to get to know you and your work!
