About Us

About RBWG

The Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild (RBWG), established in November 2004, is a non-profit 501c(3) organization dedicated to the fostering of the literary arts in Southern Coastal Delaware.

We are authors, journalists, teachers, retired professors of literature, memoirists, archivists, actors, editors, stand-up comics, songwriters and photographers. Just Plain folk. We’ve been seen in regional, national and international literary journals, trade magazines,and newspapers.

We read our work at literary venues, attend writers’ conferences, book festivals, retreats or fairs. We take writing classes, struggle with writers block and rejection letters, dream of what it would be like to have enough time to write, to get published. Some of us have done this too – had books or chapbooks published by large New York companies, by small independent presses, by self-publishers. We are writers and readers and we number more than 100. You’ll find a comrade in ink, a soul mate in literature, and you’ll be an important part of the world of storytellers.

Writing is about taking risks. It’s about challenges, about unpredictability, about change. And because it’s about those things, it’s exciting, at times frightening. Our crashing wave catches just that.

Please take a moment to join and support the coastal writing community. The Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild has a very active schedule and members who are passionate about writing.

Don’t miss:

    • A sample of readings from the Night of Literary Prose, Poetry and Songs, held once a month. We are given a topic,
      300 words to write about it and an opportunity to read what we have written. Always a wonderful night! You can see us read on YouTube! by going to the site and searching for Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild
    • RBWG book club. We have photos our last gathering and write-ups by members that capture our thoughts and impressions about the books we are reading.
