Come meet others local Science Fiction and Fantasy writers. Network, exchange ideas, and socialize with others are interested in writing about science fiction, fantasy, and other types of speculative fiction.

Our meetings consist primarily of critiques. Submit up to 2500 words in any form: short story, screenplay, flash fiction, synopsis, or a chapter from a novel, and get feedback and advice from other writers. We usually review four or five pieces per meeting.

You don’t have to bring a story to participate, bring your questions about writing, or with insights you’d like to share: what works for you, what makes you more creative and productive, and what can help you get published.

Anyone who is interested in ANY KIND of speculative fiction writing should join: science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, steampunk, paranormal, supernatural, horror, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, and more!

We meet three times a month at a coffee shop near Dulles Town Center, from 10:00 to 12:00 on Sunday mornings. Please feel free to contact me (Liz) if you’d like to learn more. Hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
