The Monarch Writers
is a St. Louis based writing group, founded in September 2017, for writers who take their writing seriously and want to move their projects forward from conception to completion.
We try to provide a space for those working on fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, in any style. Short story crafters, novelists, flash fiction devotees, and essayists are all welcome.
The Monarch Writers meet each and every Saturday for WRITE-IN sessions, at the Hartford Coffee Company. These meetings are designed to be a long ‘Write-In’ session where you can bring whatever you are working on and spend time with your project. Check the description for these events for details on how the time is structured to let you do your own thing and get the most out of your time.
In addition, there are the Monday Meetings, on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at the Gelateria Del Leone on South Grand Ave. These meetings are more formal and are mainly for sharing work and giving feedback and critique. There will also be time allotted for some discussion of the craft. We will have a theme for each month’s meetings, connecting the 1st and 3rd Mondays, usually with a short reading that we assign beforehand and discuss. The themes will be posted ahead of time on the meetup events so please follow along to stay up to date.
