Every writer is different.  Maybe you're just getting started, and looking for help in how to begin.  Maybe you've been writing for a while, and you're looking for support and motivation.  Or maybe you're ready to cross the threshold into publication.

Writers on the Verge is a group for fiction writers at any stage of the journey.  We welcome novels, short stories, flash fiction, and anything in between.  We also welcome any fiction genre, including mainstream fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, children's/young adult, etc.

At our meetings, you will get a chance to learn about the craft of writing from your peers, and share what you have learned.  We will do this through sharing our own work and offering honest, respectful critique to others.  We will also read and discuss books about the craft of writing, and will choose stories from published writers to read and discuss.

Above all, welcome!  We're all looking forward to meeting the next generation of writers in Richmond!

We're 182 Fiction Writers

This group is closed to new members.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
