Plenty of famous writers have come from Pennsylvania; George Romero, Wallace Stevens, John Updike, James Michener and Ida Tarbell, just to name a few. This collection of Pennsylvania writers groups is by no means all-inclusive, but we’d like it to be.
If you see that we’ve overlooked a worthy Pennsylvania writer’s group in this section, please drop a line to editor (at) freelance (dash) zone (dotcom) and let us know. We’d be happy to add another name to the list. Be sure to give us all the important facts about the group when you write, including the name, where and when the group meets, etc.
