Agile Writers of Richmond

Welcome to Agile Writers
(write your first-draft in 6 months)

About us

Agile Writers of Richmond, VA is a writer’s club dedicated to helping the beginning writer create a first-draft in 6 months. Greg Smith created the Agile Writer Method as a way of getting from a blank page to a full manuscript. It is based on the writings of experts in the field and years of interaction with writers of all skill levels. 

It is the contention of Agile Writers that anyone who has a story to tell can complete a first-draft in 6 months using the Agile Writer Method.

"You don’t have to be a great gram­mar­ian or great speller to write your story. You don’t have to have con­nec­tions in the writ­ing world. What you need is a pas­sion for your story and a plan to com­plete. You bring the pas­sion, we’ll bring the plan."
