NOVAWC Yahoo! Users Group

The NOVAWC Yahoo! Users Group is a private discussion group for members of the Northern Virginia chapter of the Virginia Writers Club. The Virginia Writers Club is a statewide organization founded in 1918 for the purpose of supporting and stimulating the art, craft, and business of writing in the Commonwealth. Membership in the Northern Virginia Writers Club is open to adults living in the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, and Prince William, or in the City of Alexandria.


This loop is limited to current members of the Northern Virginia Writers Club. If you terminate your membership in the NoVAWC, you will be removed from the loop.

This loop is for the exchange of information or discussion by NoVAWC members on matters pertaining to NoVAWC, VWC (Virginia Writers Club) or the craft or business of writing. All other issues should be taken off-line to private email.

All opinions posted to this loop are solely those of the author. NoVAWC cannot be held liable or responsible for any content posted to the loop. Posts made by NoVAWC officers or committee members represent their opinions only and do not reflect official NoVAWC policy unless specifically stated.

No content may be forwarded or excerpted outside of this loop unless the author grants express written permission.

Please note that any discussion of monetary matters (such as advances, royalty rates, etc.) is prohibited.

Members are encouraged to post news of their accomplishments in writing and publishing, such as new publications, awards and writing competition victories, speaking appearances and interviews, book signings and blog tours, favorable reviews, and sales milestones. We ask that you begin the subject line of such posts with “BSP” (“blatant self-promotion”): for example, “BSP: My [new book title] is now available on Kindle.” Please avoid excessive self-promotion, such as repeated sales pitches or “spamming” other members.

Please be courteous to other loop members. When replying to a prior post, please trim the original message to one or two lines, rather than including the entire original message. If you are on digest, please make sure that you have changed the subject of your post to reflect the content and deleted the body of the original digest.

Signature lines can take up a lot of space, especially in digest from, so please limit signatures to three lines (or fewer).

Personal exchanges or disputes must be taken off-line. Defamatory or derogatory posts are strictly prohibited.

Posting to the loop indicates that you have read and agreed to abide by these terms of use. If you do not agree to these terms of use, you must immediately unsubscribe the loop by submitting a blank message to northernvawriters-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com.

Violation of these terms of use may result in a loss of posting privileges or removal from this loop.
