What we’re about
Welcome and thank you for coming to check out the Brandywine Valley Writers Group Meet-up page!
Whether you are an existing member of the group or checking us out for the first time, we hope that you will find the new Meetup page offers the information you want.
The Brandywine Valley Writers Group was founded to help professional and amateur writers improve their craft and achieve their goals. We strive to inspire writers through our various programs and to offer friendship within our extensive membership.
We hold monthly program meetings on the third Tuesday of the month upstairs at Ryan's Pub, 124 West Gay Street, West Chester. The phone to Ryan's Pub is (610) 344-3934; their website is www.ryans-pub.com Bring quarters to feed the parking meter, or park a few blocks away in one of the many free parking lots. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm but many of us arrive around six to order a meal and socialize. An important note: the meeting is held upstairs and the entrance is not handicapped friendly.
We encourage you to use the RSVP system on Meet-up to help us predict the turn-out for the meetings and make appropriate arrangements. It also allows the rest of the group to know a little more about you! And please offer positive feedback on the meetings. It is the way new people may determine whether they will attend an in-person meeting.
Also, we'll be adding content to the various areas of the Meet-up page, so come back often to see what we have added.
You can also find more information on the group by visiting www.BVWG.org
Thanks for joining us!

- March 2024: Members and Attenders Reading Night!Ryan's Pub, West Chester, PA
The March 2024 BVWG meeting will once again be a celebration of the stories and poems we’re writing!
We invite you to read aloud from a selection of your own work (up to five minutes or 750 words). Readers will be randomly chosen. Rest assured this is a non-critique evening, and work-in-progress as well as completed writings are equally welcome — from new and experienced writers alike.
This is a great opportunity to practice reading your work in a safe space, among friends. Readings, in case you've never done or attended one, are about celebration, not evaluation. We can't wait to hear what you've been working on!
We do require that you put your name in the reading pool ahead of time.
You must send a short bio of 50-75 words to firstname.lastname@example.org, written in third person. Your bio will be used to introduce you and your work. ***This is the only way to secure a reading spot. You must send a bio. ***Walk-in reading slots will not be available. No need to submit your writing in advance; just send a message indicating you’d like to read, along with your 3rd person bio. Deadline is Friday, March 15th.
See you there!
