Agile Writers of Richmond

Our Meetings

Wednesdays, 6pm-7pm, Weekly

Beginning writers start by breaking their story down into eight stages. Each stage has a specific purpose in the story. This is a structured outline of the plot of the story. Each stage represents 30 pages in the novel.

Open Meeting

Wednesdays, 7pm-8pm pm, Weekly

We welcome new­com­ers! Each week we go once around the table to catch up on our progress. Then we go over local upcom­ing con­fer­ences and con­tests. Each week a mem­ber will con­dense a chap­ter from a book on the craft of writ­ing and lead us in dis­cus­sion. Then a spot­lighted writer will share their ele­va­tor pitch.

Critique Workshop
Wednesdays, 8-9pm, Weekly

The sec­ond half of the meet­ing is split between those who are writ­ing man­u­script pages and those in the plan­ning phase (sto­ry­boar­ing). Critiquers are bro­ken into groups of 3 writ­ers each. You’ll have the same cri­tique part­ners for the dura­tion of your book. Storyboarders spend sev­eral weeks plan­ning their book using the Agile Writer Method. Then grad­u­ate to the cri­tique group. We find this arrange­ment instills moti­va­tion and accountability.
