The Richmond Chapter
of the Virginia Writers Club serves the City of Richmond
and counties of Chesterfield, Henrico, Goochland and Powhatan
. Meetings are held 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
on the THIRD SATURDAY of the month
unless otherwise noted at the chapter's website: www.richmondwriters.org
Currently, the chapter is meeting at Gayton Baptist Church, 13501 North Gayton Rd. in Richmond, VA. (From the Short Pump area travel Broad Street west. Turn left onto North Gayton Road just before Strange's Florist & Greenhouses. The church will be on the left shortly after the two lanes of North Gayton Road merge into one lane.) When the church is not available, the chapter meets at a Henrico County library. The chapter website is updated to reflect any changes in meeting time or place.
Meetings vary from feedback sessions (where members read 3-minute excerpts of works in progress and get feedback from fellow members), to guest speakers or writing workshops, to business networking. An annual writing contest with categories of poetry, fiction and nonfiction, is held in conjunction with the Virginia Writers Club Golden Nib Contest.
Membership in the Virginia Writers Club is encouraged, however, individuals may attend several meetings with no strings attached just to see if the group suits their needs first. Members range from those just starting out to others who have had books published.
