We're a club that specializes in writing, publishing, banning cliches, critiquing mass-market produce, and looking for bargains at bookstores. You need not be an author to join. We just need some influential voices and opinionated commentators. Otherwise, bring your writing, your art, and your photography. Comedians welcome. No literary snobs, please.


Visit the Writer's Round Table Facebook page.
