Our listing of writers groups in Ohio should not be mistaken for a comprehensive list, or even a finalized one. Freelance-Zone.com is always in search of new writers groups by state to present to our readers looking for good writer resources in their local area.
If you know of an Ohio-based writer’s group not listed here, please get in touch and we’ll add it to the list. Write to jwallace (at) freelance (dash) zone dot com.
Also, if you’re starting a writer’s meetup group, we’d love to know about it, and please let us know if you find broken links or if your favorite writer’s group website has migrated to Facebook or elsewhere.
