VB Writes...Nonfiction & Memoir

Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3:15-5:15pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.

John James Reid, Mid-Atlantic: Poems of Separation and the Sea - Poetry!

Mid-Atlantic is a collection of poems of an emotional journey from Ireland to the US and personally within the US itself, addressing the theme of disconnection. The sea is the metaphor for the journey through the emotional waves of personal transition from the Atlantic to the Pacific North-West. Deeply personal and revealing in tone, they end their journey in the light of Bellingham Bay.
