2017 Writing Show Season Announced


Educational and interactive, The Writing Show brings you the art and business of writing from the professionals.

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

The 2016 Writing Show season was a success with good attendance, great knowledge and a fantastic venue with our partner Firehouse Theatre.

For 2017, we are staying at Firehouse Theatre and sticking with our last Wednesday of the month from January through September schedule. All the new JRW membership options offer some passes to the Writing Show. If you are a frequent attendee, check with Phil Hilliker at membership@jamesriverwriters.org about renewing your membership.

Firehouse Theatre, is located at 1609 West Broad Street beginning in February. Free parking is available across the Street from Firehouse in the Lowe’s parking lot.

The programming for 2017 was designed with your comments and suggestions in mind and is adapting to meet your writing craft and business needs.
