The Red Barn Writers' Guild was born from a small group of aspiring writers who wanted to show respect for their rural roots and recognize the values inspired by their backgrounds.
The Red Barn Writers' Guild is open and welcoming to anyone who wishes to join. As a group, we focus on family friendly writing spanning all genres. Writers of all ages are welcome. Currently we meet twice a month near Dyersville, Iowa. We would welcome an online version of our group to help support distant writers. Our goal is to support and encourage writing. Each workshop will have a theme toward this end.
