Welcome to The Broken Quill Society

This website is a space for the University of Ottawa's Creative Writing Club to share their personal work and offer feedback and constructive criticism on one another's work.

We started in 2013, founded by Gabbi Gauthier and have been growing consistently in size each year! We've also got a team of executive/admin members, and you can find out more about who they are and what they do below!

Weekly Meetings

We will meet weekly on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM for the Fall 2019 semester. Meetings usually last at least an hour, often more, but don't feel obliged to stay the whole time, or show up right at the beginning! We'd love to see your face, even fleetingly.

Any additional meeting times and locations are posted a week beforehand on the Facebook page.
Be sure to check Facebook for last minute room changes or cancelled meetings.

See the Facebook group for more info

Meet the Executive


Just a dude with a thing for writing, books and photography.

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
