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 - http://www.northernvirginiawriters.org.


NEXT MEETING:

An author’s website is their online office and storefront, but it doesn’t have to be a stodgy one. In this session, you will learn how, with just a little work, you can rapidly transform your author website from blah to boss. A good website doesn’t have to cost thousands of dollars; your site can be a simple as a single page and still present a professional face to reviewers and help you connect with fans. It all starts with knowing what you want to do, and why.

Nate Hoffelder has been building and running WordPress sites since 2010. He blogs about indie publishing and helps authors connect with readers by customizing websites to suit each author’s voice. You may have heard his site, The Digital Reader, mentioned on podcasts such as The Creative Penn, Wordslinger, or Sell More Books Show.
