Bluegrass Writers Coalition is a gathering of authors who work to promote literature in all forms across Kentucky. We live, work, or write in central Kentucky, and meet once a month to talk about the craft of writing. As experienced and beginning writers, we believe writing to be an enjoyable, cathartic, and possibly lucrative endeavor. As Kentuckians we seek to encourage literacy and create a focus on literature across the Bluegrass. We do this through contests that encourage entry and reward writing endeavors, public readings and events, and other literary endeavors. As BWC members we strive to share our writing, gain knowledge of writing and publishing through our experienced members, and conduct workshops and conferences that benefit a writer. We are free to express our opinions, seek knowledge, or receive feedback in a supportive environment, and we welcome all who enjoy sharing the written word.

We meet the second Thursday of each month in the Community Room of Paul Sawyier Public Library in downtown Frankfort, Kentucky. The meeting begins at 5:00 p.m. and runs approximately 90 minutes. OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE HELD ON August 8, 2024. All are welcome
