Welcome to Hamilton Mountain Writers’ Guild! 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 60 local writers cared for by a Board of Directors, various sub-committees, and writing team leaders.
