The Richmond Writers chapter serves members of the Virginia Writers Club, Inc. who live in the City of Richmond and counties of Amelia, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Henrico, Goochland and Powhatan.

Effective July, 2016, we are moving our meetings to the central area of Goochland County (still within the Greater Richmond region) to open opportunities for more writers (both adults and middle school & high school teens) who have especially struggled with the idea of driving to Charlottesville or the City of Richmond for writers group meetings.

Nestled between Charlottesville and Richmond, our new meeting location sits within minutes of crossroads leading from the counties of Louisa, Fluvanna, Cumberland, Powhatan, and Amelia, thus helping the Virginia Writers Club span the two largest populations of writers in central Virginia!

FOR MORE INFORMATION, please use the CONTACT FORM at WWW.RICHMONDWRITERS.ORG to add your name and e-mail address to our list. We'll be sending a monthly newsletter with meeting notices and activity announcements.

There is no fee to receive the monthly newsletter and there are no chapter dues. Membership in the statewide Virginia Writers Club will cover your membership in the Richmond Writers Chapter!

Services include:



PEER MENTORING by members with experience and expertise in the craft and business of writing. VWC members in the Richmond area should use the CONTACT FORM at www.richmondwriters.org to express their writing-related need and be matched with a fellow member, also in the Richmond area, who has volunteered to share their knowledge.

RICHMOND WRITERS' GOLDEN NIB WRITING CONTEST - stage one of a two-tiered writing contest conducted by the Virginia Writers Club, Inc., whereby first-place winners at the chapter level move on to the statewide competition.
