James River Writers is excited to be back at Firehouse Theatre for the 2019 season of The Writing Show. Held the last Wednesday of most months, January through September, (see the March exception below), The Writing Show offers a panel of experts focused on topics geared to help writers with both their craft and navigating the fast-changing business of writing. There are plenty of opportunities for socializing and networking with other central Virginia writers, too. Our fabulous co-chairs this year are Melissa Scott Sinclair and Amanda Sue Creasey.
