The Schaumburg Scribes is a local writer's group that meets every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Schaumburg Library.
The purpose of the Schaumburg Scribes meetings are to allow authors to bring two pages of their work to be read aloud, and gently critiqued, by a wide variety of authors and expertise so that the writing can be transformed into its clearest most impactful piece possible.
