Alaska Writers Guild  - Supporting Alaska's Writers

Welcome to the Interior Chapter of 

the Alaska Writers Guild

If you are a writer in Interior Alaska you are in good company. We have a wealth of writing talent in our area so let the Guild connect you to writers, poets, publishers, editors, and reviewers.

  • Attend one of our free monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of each month. Meetings include guest speakers or interactive activities that celebrate and teach writing.
  • Join the Interior Writers Workshop. We meet the fourth Sunday of each month for face-to-face critique of up to ten pages of your writing. 

Be part of this dynamic and supportive community!

 Writing Non-fiction

Ronald Smith

Tuesday, June 20, 7:00 pm

Bear Gallery in Pioneer Park

Ronald Smith, author of Interior and Northern Alaska: A Natural History and How Not to Die Hunting in Alaska will discuss some of the forms that non-fiction writing can take. Books and essays aren’t the only possibilities. We will try some short, non-fiction writing exercises based on your knowledge of Alaska that he uses with his students. Bring your fingers for counting (extra fingers will be provided if you forget yours), and a pen for writing. Of course, as you know, the pen is mightier than the pencil.
