Brandywine Valley Writers Group Meetup

Member Manuscript Critique Night

 Bring us your best, your brightest, even your most troublesome 2,500 words….

Sharpen your red pencils! For our October meeting, BVWG members are encouraged to share a short manuscript. We’ll break into small groups, read each other’s work, ask and answer questions, and provide encouraging (even helpful) feedback.

Note: Visitors are welcome to participate in the critique process, but only dues-paid BVWG members may submit manuscripts.

Submission Guidelines: Please bring 5 copies of your manuscript to share with readers. Please print double-spaced so there’s room for commentary and please limit your submission to no more than 2,500 words.

Although meetings officially start at 7:00 pm, many of us show up early to have a meal and catch up with each other. You can also order food and drink (on your own tab) throughout the meeting. The program generally lasts approximately 75 minutes. However, people stay as long as they like after the official program and we sometimes close the place.

Officers of the group are currently:

• Mark A.R. Mitchell - President

• James Breslin - Vice President

• Jurgen Flood - Treasurer

• Wayne A. "Tony" Conaway - Publicity

• [OPEN] - Secretary

• Gary Zenker - PR Advertising and Meetup Administrator

• Dick Lolla - Web Site Administrator

Please check the event schedule for information on the programs and for additional meeting content and locations. You can find additional information on our Facebook page and on our web site:

    Fun meeting. Great to meet new members last night and also to read and critique the writing of members. Also - always motivating to hear feedback from others. Thanks!

    Won't be there- last minute babysitter cancellation. Sorry. However, I think this submission has the potential to jar your sensibilities so it may be for the best. Have fun!!

    Hi everyone,
    I just moved here from Cleveland, and I'm excited to find a writers' group. I write fiction. For a taste of my style, you can go here:

    See you soon
