submissions for the annual Blue Nib contest in all genre are due by the end of June; John is coordinating this.
At the heart of membership in the Blue Ridge Writers is the long-standing critique program. In monthly sessions, members give and receive constructive comments on their works in a supportive environment.
One member says, "The atmosphere is congenial; the feedback essential to improving my writing."
Another says, "It is so important to be part of a supportive community that helps me be the best writer I can be."
Meeting in the virtual Zoom environment has replaced in-person meetings at WriterHouse and Northside Library for the time being. Members are assigned to a small discussion group (4-6 members) on the third Friday of the month.
One benefit of the Zoom meeting format is that the travel time is whatever it takes for participants to get to their computers! Some BRW members live an hour's drive away from Charlottesville, or further. With Zoom we have convenience and safety, as well as community and camaraderie. So, if you've been contemplating participating in Critique, this is a good time to try it out.
Only members may submit up to ten pages of works in progress. Upon confirmation, guests may observe one session prior to joining.
NOTE: If WrterHouse opens for group sessions in July, we will meet there on July 31, instead of the regularly scheduled July 17.
