Our meetings are free and open to the public. We encourage you to invite members of the Brazos Valley writing community to join us! 

New pre-meeting programming! 30-min Group Critique : 

Our regional meetings start out with a group critique session. This format is ideal for learning about the writing and revision process. If you’d like to share your work in progress with others and receive or provide feedback, please bring printed copies of up to 5 pages of a manuscript to share. Zoom participants will be allowed to screen share in order to receive feedback. Your work will be read out loud and critiqued as a group. Even if your work has not been chosen you will learn a lot!

Our regional meetings feature guest speakers sharing writing and illustration tips as well as industry news and social time for members to meet and network. Meetings are streamed via Zoom and available for replay. Login details and replay links are available on each meeting's event page.
