Brandywine Valley Writers Group Meetup

Judging a Book by its Cover

(Sure, everyone does it -- so make sure your book has the right cover)


The June meeting of the BVWG will explore cover art: What works, why, and how you can get the right cover for your book. The evening will feature local artists and photographers who can talk about their approach to book covers and help you understand how you can most effectively interact with a cover artist to create the right cover for your book.

* * *

Although meetings officially start at 7:00 pm, many of us show up early to have a meal and catch up with each other. You can also order food and drink (on your own tab) throughout the meeting. The program generally lasts approximately 75 minutes. However, people stay as long as they like after the official program and we sometimes close the place.

Officers of the group are currently:

  • Mark Mitchell - President
  • James Breslin - Vice President
  • Jurgen Flood - Treasurer
  • Wayne A. "Tony" Conaway - Publicity
  • Ginny Beards - Secretary
  • Dick Lolla - Web Site Administrator

Please check the event schedule for information on the programs and for additional meeting content and locations. You can find additional information on our Facebook page and on our web site:

    Awesome. This was a great meeting and went deeper than a discussion on book covers. It was filled with examples and the processes of creative people working together to create. Quite a remarkable set of presentations.
