About DW Voices

Deadwood Writers Voices is produced by the Deadwood Writers Group of Southeast Michigan. Established in 2002 and meeting at Barnes & Noble in the city of Northville, the group provides an environment where writers support each other based on their personal writing goals.
.
The group meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month (except December) from 7:00-9:00 pm. We offer critiques of members’ writing pieces, and we are always open to new people. Feel free to drop by and see what we’re about. Please review our meeting process (pdf)
