We are a fun and supportive group of writers living in and around Northern Virginia. All skill levels and all types of writing are represented: novels, poetry, lyrics, short stories, non-fiction, children's stories, and more!

We meet every Wednesday at 7pm in a room at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington.  Meetings generally last about 2 hours and are either sessions designed to provide feedback on members' work, or a workshop session aimed at a specific element of writing.

Check the Calendar and the About Us tabs for details.

Come by and check it out, or email us for more information. We don't bite.

Our annual dues re now $18.

The money is used to cover costs associated with the Meetup Site and copies, handouts, and other supplies utilized by the group. "Extra" funds will either carry over to future year's costs OR be used to throw a party for the group or present awards. The group will decide.

Once a new member joins he or she will have 2 months to try the group on for size before being required to pay dues. If after 2 months, a member has not paid, they will be removed from the group.
