Tidewater Writers is dedicated to the support of both aspiring and accomplished writers in the Hampton Roads area. Whether your goal is professional publication, self/independent publication, or just to improve your skill with the written word, Tidewater Writers can help you achieve your objectives. We meet four times a month, in groups of 5-10 members, to hold readings and provide constructive critique. We also hold irregular seminars on the craft of writing, on the business of writing and publication, on editing, on achieving professional publication, and on succeeding in the independent publishing market. Whether you write literary or genre fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or screenplays, you can find a supportive voice with Tidewater Writers. Welcome!
