Welcome to Word Up Barrie
Word Up Barrie is a volunteer run group for writers and authors of all genres. If you write, that means you! We've welcomed writers of poetry, fiction and science fiction, music lyrics, spoken word, hip hop and more.
Join us the second Thursday of every month on Zoom to share your work and meet other writers.
To see who our headlining authors will be, visit our Upcoming Events page.
If you are a writer and you'd like to show us your stuff, please contact us!
If you're not a writer, worry not. Come and enjoy the incredible talent from our featured authors and local writers, who share with us their precious gems.
We're developing Workshops to help writers in all stages of their careers.
Check out our Workshops Page and sign up when you see something that fits your need.
Spaces will be limited.
