Our mission is to provide a climate of moral support, learning, creativity, and personal growth to writers of all levels and to periodically publish the collective works of these writers.
Who Are We?
In April 1982, two young men, hoping to attract young women, put an ad in the Medicine Hat News to start a writing club. Three women showed up, all in their fifties and sixties. After a few meetings, the young men stopped coming, leaving the ladies to pay the ad. The club continued and in 2003 became the Medicine Hat Rhyme & Reason Writers’ Club.
Some of our members have won writing contests, written articles for newspapers, and had their books published – even ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’! But all members come for the joy of writing and sharing. Our club has published several anthologies, including a collaboration with the Photography Club resulting in a coffee table book ‘Is a Picture Worth a Thousand Words?’
Everyone is welcome to join the club. All you need is a desire to string words together in an interesting and creative manner. You may write recipes, poems, ditties, romances, novels or children’s literature. Whatever you write, you have the potential of making our group better and, in turn, growing from the input of others.
Our club is a registered non-profit association with an executive committee. Members pay a yearly fee, but anyone is welcome to come and participate in a few meetings until they decide they wish to join.
- Formal: Club agenda, member updates, readings, critiques and skill sessions.
- Informal: Member updates and open writing time.
