Big News about The Writing Show in 2015

TWritingShow_logoColorJames River Writers is shaking up The Writing Show with a new venue, a new day, and best of all, a new partner.

For 2015, in order to better align with some of our other programming, The Writing Show will be held on the last Wednesday of the month from January through September.

As part of a new partnership with Firehouse Theatre, The Writing Show will be held in the theatre space at 1609 West Broad Street beginning in February. Free parking is available across the Street from Firehouse in the Lowe’s parking lot. This Partnership may lead to some new and exciting programs in the future.

The programming for 2015 was designed with your comments and suggestions in mind and is adapting to meet your writing craft and business needs.

Entertaining and interactive, The Writing Show has been described as:

  • Inside the Actor’s Studio meets the New York Times bestseller list.
  • The Tonight Show meets the art of writing.

It’s inspiring. It’s fun. And it’s only happening live in Richmond.

Season Passes are on sale now! All eight shows left for $71. Even if you can only attend six of the remaining shows during the year, you still save!
