The writing workshop I've been running for the past 2 years has an official name now: Winding River Writers. We're a group of about eight regulars who meet once a month to read each other's poetry, fiction, plays, and nonfiction. We're all advanced writers intent on publishing.
If you have some experience as a writer and would like to join us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Northern Virginia daily just mentioned us in an article about local writers' groups:Pen Pals: Writing Clubs Help Members Push Themselves
It's great to see so many groups springing up. There's also now a regular readings series and open mic at The Book of Knowledge on the downtown walking mall in Winchester. It takes place on the first Friday of each month at 7 PM. It's a great store and the audience is very supportive. Check it out!
