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 do this in a few ways:
Every month (on the 2nd Wednesday) they have a Happy Hour and Open Mic night where local writers come to share their work. The open mic begins at 6pm at Black Swan Books & Music in Staunton.
Occasionally they host a reading by a visiting writer or writers. And they also host special events--writing workshops, bookfairs, panel discussions, and the like.
Every Monday afternoon from 1-4:00pm some of the members gather at Blue Mountain Coffees in Staunton for a Write-In. It's not a meeting or a critique session. They're just there to write.
