The Unpolished Gems


The Unpolished Gems is a local writing group of the Fox Valley area; current members are: Alice Claypool, Amy DeBroux, Mary Pribbenow, Betty Smedlund, Jan Elias, Barbara Jo Gauthier, and Don Wydeven.  The group meets monthly to encourage writing and to critique each other’s works.

The Gems have been the featured entertainment at the Atlas Coffee Mill and Café biannual Writers’ Dinner Theater, each April and October since 2007.  They have also read their original poetry and short stories at other venues, including Nauts Landing in Menasha, and at the Appleton, Kimberly, and Little Chute Public Libraries.
