End of Year Celebration

Please join us at December 20, 4:30 PM as we celebrate the close of our first year as a reinvigorated BRW at Zinburgers, Barricks Road, Charlottesville,  and thank retiring board members Rossane Vrugtmnan and Brenda Morris. 

Reserve a spot with Brenda, b1a1morris@gmail.com.


Dory Hulse took 1st place in the Virginia Writers Club's Golden Nib writing contest for her 

non-fiction "Amazing Grace".  Dory is an active member in the Blue Ridge Writers and placed first in the local Blue Nib. You can read her poignant tale of the nonagenarian 

and the community that embraced her. 

David Black took 1st place for his poem "As We Study an Old Photograph". The poem touches the nostalgia of reliving moments captured in a photograph.

Our congratulations to our talented members, and to all members who participated

in this annual writing contest.

October 26 retreat

BRW Author Retreat 2019

Members and guests gathered at the home of Mary Ellen and Earl Jantzi north of Waynesboro Saturday, October 26, for an author’s retreat. The potluck food was scrumptious, the pastoral view and setting were peaceful, and the company delightful. Members had an opportunity to get to know each other before writing activities began, which were followed by several hours of authors reading from completed works. Mary Ellen gave each participant a copy of her illustrated poetry book, Remnants. Thank you to the Jantzi’s and to everyone attending for creating a valuable experience for Blue Ridge Writers. We’re ready for the next Retreat!

Thanks to Louise Mitchell for photos and post.
