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.
James River Writers is teaming up with Richmond Young Writers and the Girls of Summer to present Writing for Girls.
We will discuss what it means to write for girls–both young and not-so-young. Discussions will include fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
• How is writing for girls different than boys in today’s world?
• How does diversity feature into these stories?
• How are gender roles/identity changing the stories girls read or want?
• Girls become women, so how do female protagonists in adult literature stack up?
• Do boys read books with girl protagonists?
