Welcome to

Promoting craft, commerce and community among writers
in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

 Give your writing some heart

In Print member Beverly Long is presenting a writing program,  “Everything You Wanted To Know About Writing a Romance Novel,” at the Cherry Valley Library at 6 p.m. Feb. 20. She’ll be discussing the writing process – everything from conceptualizing an idea to writing, editing, and selling the completed manuscript to a traditional publisher or pursuing indie publishing.
There is no cost to attend but advance sign-up is requested. Here’s a link to the program:


And keep on writing … until we meet again.

Because of the weather forecast, the Feb. 10 meeting was cancelled.

We hope to reschedule the session, where we planned to get tips on forming and making the most of critique groups from Libby Fischer Hellmann. She’s a crime writer, a past president of Sisters In Crime, a resident of northern Illinois and a fellow member of CWA. Save the date.

Our next regularly scheduled meeting is April 14, 1-4 pm at Katie’s Cup

Join us for a session to see if you belong with us.

Katie’s Cup has plenty of nearby parking and is accessible to wheelchairs.


If you are a writer who would like to pursue a love of writing, expand your talents, and explore the market for publication, then In Print is the organization for you.
