What we're about

James River Writers is a non-profit organization that builds community by connecting and inspiring writers and all those in central Virginia with a love of the written word. Wherever you are in your writing journey, we invite you to learn about JRW (http://www.jamesriverwriters.org/), participate in our programs (http://www.jamesriverwriters.org/what-we-do/programs) and become a member (http://www.jamesriverwriters.org/how-you-can-help/join)today.

Please note that JRW only endorses events on our Meetup page sponsored by James River Writers. Other event listings are provided for informational purposes only to support the literary community as a whole.

Beginning on June 1, 2018, JRW's MeetUp page will only be listing events directly organized by JRW. There are several great Richmond-based literary arts calendars, including CultureWorks (https://calendar.richmondcultureworks.org/), if you are looking for a wider variety of offerings.

Writers Wednesday

Ardent Craft Ales

• What we'll do Meeting the second Wednesday of every month from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Writers Wednesday brings together authors of every genre in a casual atmosphere to connect, laugh, and revel in a well-deserved break from keyboards and screens. Free and open to the public, this laid back meet and greet, held at Ardent Craft Ales in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood in Richmond, is a great entry point for those new to JRW. • What to bring • Important to know This is an informal social event with no program. Ardent hosts a food cart so, if you don't have a chance to have dinner, you can get something to eat, too.
