The Blue Ridge Writers Chapter, Virginia Writers Club, Inc. (hereafter, BRWC) serves the cities of Charlottesvile, Lexington, Staunton, and Waynesboro; and the counties of Albemarle, Augusta, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, and Orange.

      The Blue Ridge Writers Chapter (formerly known as the Charlottesville Writers) was founded in 1991 with the primary purpose of serving both aspiring and published writers in Central Virginia. Using programs and activities to encourage interaction between new and veteran writers, major goals include the support and stimulation of the art, craft, and business of writing; mentoring programs for teen writers; workshops and teaching forums for members; and advocacy for the literary arts in the communities served by the chapter.
    Our chapter meets monthly, unless otherwise noted, in the downstairs conference room of the Virginia Foundation for Humanities, 145 Ednam Drive, Charlottesville, Virginia (take the first left, after turning off 250W into the Boar's Head Inn Complex). 
    For more information, e-mail Linda Layne, or visit our website.

SATELLITE GROUPS of the Blue Ridge Writers:

Skyline Writers’ Circle is a satellite group of the Blue Ridge Writers (BRW) chapter of the Virginia Writers Club. It was founded and is facilitated Janell Robisch, who is an author, BRW/VWC member, and Luray resident. The group is new, with its first meeting in February 2017, so they are still finding their feet and their direction, whether that will be with support, critiques, speakers, and/or open mic sessions. If you are interested in attending meetings, please contact Janell at Janell.robisch[at]gmail.com. Meetings will be held at Trackside Theater in Luray (32 E Main St.) at 2:00 pm on the second Saturday of each month starting on February 11, 2017.

SWAG is the Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta satellite group of the Blue Ridge Writers Chapter. Their aim is to elevate the profile of area writers and to promote the literary arts in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County. (They also welcome participation from Blue Ridge members elsewhere!) Facilitator: Clifford Garstang - cliff.garstang[at]gmail.com
