Our mission is to deliver exceptional writing workshops with a personal, compassionate and engaging delivery.


VWC has a Meetup group! Join us for workshops and classes in creative writing. We also offer free introductory classes on an ongoing basis.

Meetings provide new and seasoned writers with an opportunity to connect with local writers, dialogue about writing and the creative process, write to prompts and exercises designed to get us thinking and writing in new ways, get inspired and have fun!
