The Steamboat Writers Group is a program of Steamboat Creates

Great news! We are finally back at the Arts Depot for our in-person meetings. And we are still using Zoom for our remote folks. Hooray!! 

For more info, please email info@steamboatwriters.com.

Either in-person or online, all are welcome to join us. 

Due to the uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person meeting is subject to change. We will keep you posted.


Writers of all genres and levels of experience are welcome to read their unpublished works. We do not critique content. Instead, we offer positive advice on whether the writing is effective. Each participant may read for about ten minutes and then receive a few minutes of comments. Times vary depending on how many readers we have. By meeting weekly instead of monthly like other groups, we are able to keep a degree of momentum on longer works. 

Please join us!

Coming soon! A Winter 2022 conference is in the planning stage. This is a new feature in addition to the traditional summer conferences the Steamboat Writers Group has sponsored over the years. Stay tuned for more information! This should be exciting!

A short video of Steamboat’s creatives includes the Writers Group at about 1:06!

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
—Enid Bagnold
