Northern Virginia is home to a vibrant writing community which is supported by many organizations and individuals. The following list is a collection of the groups I have found.
This list is growing all the time. If you would like to see your group added to the list, please fill out the contact form. (Actually, what we would really like to do is give you your own page on this site, but that might be too much for some.)
Virginia Writing Club
There are three chapters of the VWC in northern Virginia.
- Write by the Rails (meets on Saturday, at various locations in Prince William county)
- Riverside Writers (meets the second Saturday of the month, at 1pm, in Fredericksburg)
- Northern Virginia Writers Club (meets on Saturday in Arlington, VA)
Horror Writers Association
Sisters in Crime
This is both the local chapter for SiC and the Mystery Writers of America.
- Chesapeake Chapter (meets in Reston and Alexandria, VA)

Technically there is no RWA chapter in northern VA. There are a couple chapters nearby, though.
