What we're about

Formed in 1987, we seek to develop and support writers in the Bryan/College Station area specifically and the Brazos Valley generally. We offer monthly meetings, workshops, contests, programs, critique groups, and other services to get people started writing and to help them continue writing.

Upcoming events (4+)

Motivational Check-in & Critique (Weekly on Google Meet)

Link visible for attendees

Need some motivation toward your writing goals? How about some interaction with other writers? Maybe a second pair of eyes (or more) for your work?

Check in Mondays on Google Meet for accountability and/or feedback on ongoing writing projects. Post links to work for critique or bring an idea/proposal/problem for the group to brainstorm.

Even if you don't have work to critique, make this a regular time to motivate and hold each other accountable for making weekly progress.

Consider setting weekly goals for yourself and voicing them to the group. A weekly check-in can be helpful. Check the gDoc Master List to critique work others have posted for the week (or past weeks).

Contact Mike Downey (BW President) to get access to the gDoc Master List with member writings.

WARNING: There have been repeated issues with the links shared on MeetUp, so the more reliable link will be a Google Calendar invite in your email inbox prior to each meeting.

A Writer Walks Into A Bar…

Murphy's Law

So this writer walks into a bar…
No, make that: a writer walks into a dark, smoky bar…
No, let's try: a writer, looking furtively around the bar, walks
into it…
That doesn't work, how about:
a lanky, tanned writer with a
prominent chin walks into…
nope!
The bar beckoned to the writer and finally he… not that either.
OK, the writer, a blank look on his gaunt face, stumbles into…
Let me get back to you, this may take a while.

Get together with writers in the community and learn what Brazos Writers is all about. If you're interested in writing, join us. This is purely a social event.
