The Mississauga Writers Group has been in existence since January 2013 and we have grown to over 100 members. This is our seventh yearly Word Fest anthology along with our other anthologies

We are a group of writers who have established this forum to share our experiences and pursue our dreams through creativity, knowledge and mutual respect. We want to learn from our strengths and talents and have enjoyable and stimulating conversations that only writers can relate to!

We offer quarterly ezines and anthologies to our members to have their works published. We are part of Mississauga Arts and Culture community and are part of several local events.

We would love to have writers from our local community join us. All aspiring and established writers are most welcome. We believe we all have something special inside us. Come explore your talent with the Mississauga Writers Group!

Check out our Facebook page for a complete list of events.

Come be a part of our 2021 celebrations and looking forward to 2022

2021 was a wonderful time for our group. Our quarterly ezine is full of art, photos along with poetry and prose. We are proud to be displaying student art which encourages their creativity.

We had 3 Writing Contests this year. All of them were very successful and we had wonderful submissions. We never know what to expect when we run these contests but we are never disappointed. Check out the winners in the Contest section.

Next year we are looking forward to having the contests again and to celebrate another year of writing. Come join us and be part of it. Peel Weekly News always publishes the first-place finishers. So many of our writers are featured in the newspaper.

Our monthly 2022 meetings are Jan. 8; Feb. 12; Mar. 12; Apr. 9; May 14; June 11; July 9; Aug. 13; Sept. 10; Oct. 8; Nov. 12; Dec. 10.  Starting time is 9:00 am to 1 pm except April, November and December when the start time is 10 am.

Looking forward to welcoming the new year and to see what else we will be featuring and doing within our group.
