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!
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.
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.
For Review for our meeting November 4, 2019
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
