The Northern Virginia Chapter

The Northern Virginia Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club serves the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, and Prince William and the Cities of Alexandria and Falls Church.  Meetings are held at Faith Lutheran Church in Arlington, usually on the third Saturday of every month.

Established in November 2007, our group is a vibrant balance of aspiring, emerging, and established authors.  The Chapter offers workshops and speakers at every meeting, providing members the opportunity to grow as writers, exchange ideas, and establish contact with others having similar interests.

We invite you to stop by if you are in the Northern Virginia area.  Please visit our website for more information, including meeting dates and topics -

May 16: Query Letters

At our May 16th meeting, we’ll hear from Dawn Brotherton, president of Blue Dragon Publishing, about that oh-so-frightening topic of query letters. What works? What doesn’t? What makes a publisher cringe? We’ll find out. Details for accessing the online meeting will be sent to members in this month’s newsletter.
