Welcome to Hamilton Mountain Writers’ Guild founded in 2017 by Barry Gottleib. The members of the Guild welcome and assist new and seasoned writers in the Hamilton, Ontario area. The Guild has evolved into a non-profit organization with approximately sixty local writers cared for by a Board of Directors, various sub-committees and writing team leaders.
