Meets on the 1st & 3rd Sundays from 3-5pm, VIRTUALLY
In order to serve the needs of writers who cannot meet in person at this time, we're happy to offer this VIRTUAL Writing Group that is also open to newcomers and drop-ins.
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. Facilitated by Richard Gerry and Kendra Cook. For more information about joining this group, please email and

Village Books hosts many writing groups, usually in the Writers' Corner on the mezzanine level of the store or in the Readings Gallery on the lowest level. Come meet other writers who can help you get organized, give feedback, and help you with your writing goals. These groups are free and open to newcomers and drop-ins. Feel free to just show up!
