“for writers by writers”

About the Club

Established in November 2007, the Northern Virginia Writers Club is a chapter of the Virginia Writers Club serving aspiring and published authors alike in the northern Virginia region. Currently, meetings are hybrid or entirely virtual, usually on the third or fourth Saturday of every month.

The club offers workshops, panel discussions, and expert speakers designed to assist members in the art and craft of writing, as well as to support members with the business side of writing. Club meetings and a members-only Facebook Group offer members the opportunity to exchange ideas and establish contact with other writers having similar interests. We also have a critique group and beta readers.

Important Upcoming Dates:
April 15: Scams, Pitfalls, Realities​
May 20: Interview skills
