Baltimore Jewish Writers Guild

Come join us!

We are a group of people who like to write. Some of us are published, while some of us aspire to be published. Some of us write just for fun. Some of us write for our families. No matter what the reason, we gather together to support one another and share in our enjoyment of the literary arts.

We have no membership fees or any other type of fees. Our group is free!

 

News!

A member of group has been featured by the Jewish Museum of Maryland.

A very belated THANK YOU to Judy Pachino for coming to speak to our group in November. We really enjoyed our discussion of her book, C5: From Impact to Recovery.

 

About Us

We meet the first Monday of every month at 7:15 PM at the Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. If meeting dates are changed, members are notified by email. We do not meet during certain Jewish holidays.

We discuss current writing events, complete writing exercises, and review each other's work.

Our group has been meeting for about a decade, although our members have changed over the years. In 2018 our leader, Terry Kane, had to resign, and we miss her very much. So we are all contributing to keep our group alive.

A Farewell Poem to our group from Ada:

BALTIMORE, MY BALTIMORE

 

 

I am leaving today but though I roam

I’m coming back to BALTIMORE

‘cause that’s my home

On the CHESAPEAKE SHORE.

So here’s a peek of a CHARM CITY tour.

 

There’s a lot to do

In this city that’s old and new

With it’s own special manner

It’s the city of the STAR SPANGLED BANNER

Home to the ORIOLE BIRDS

And POE’S poetic, mysterious words.

To replace the dearly departed 

We’ve RAVENS - can’t wait ’til they’ve started

 

We’re known for our CRABS, crustacean and people

MENKEN’s barb’s and BABE RUTH’S bat

UNITA’S’ arm and things like that.

HOWARD ASHMAN’S words, ANNE TYLER too

EUBIE BLAKE and BILLIE HOLIDAY if you’re blue.

We’ve got the BALTIMORE SUN  and the moon on the BAY

(Hey we’ve got our own CONSTELLATION)

Playing hard at night and working hard all day

We believe we’re second to none

Yet we’re friendly and call everyone HON’

 

From the SHOT and BROMO SELTZER TOWER

HARBORPLACE  and HOPKIN’S DOME

It’s a city of staying power

And will call you home

No matter where you go

Like the ponies at PIMLICO, the center jewel in the crown

BALTIMORE’S my city and my hometown
