Writing is a solitary profession and pursuing your writing goals can often feel isolating and lonely. ACFW Virginia’s local cluster meetings are designed to help our chapter members meet in-person for fellowship, sharing knowledge, and mutual encouragement.

We are always looking to start more writer meet-ups for our members. Starting a local cluster is simple. ACFW Virginia will provide  you with a list of chapter members in your area. All you do is pick a day, time, and place to meet each month (your home, a nearby restaurant or coffee shop, or a meeting room in your local library.) Cluster organizers submit attendance information following their meet-up. That’s it!

If you’re interested in finding out how to host a monthly meet-up for writers in your area, please contact Crystal Sandow aa our contact form.
