Welcome !

We know your first novel, play, or book of poems is in there somewhere; why not join us as you hone your craft in an atmosphere of friendship and creativity served with laughter, fellowship, and maybe even a glass of wine.

Our regular monthly meetings are held at the Bella Vista Public Library in Bella Vista, AR. Usually scheduled to take place on the second Wednesday of each month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., consisting of a short creative activity, followed by a guest presenter, and then open readings by our members. Be sure to check our calendar for exact times as they will change depending on the BV Library schedule.

We have a new home, The Writers House on Dug Hill. Bella Vista Dug Hill Cemetery Trustees have graciously invited VLWP to create a space for writers, poets, musicians, and artists. Our address is listed below on Google Maps. Hope you volunteer to help on our Dug Hill Project to create an office, writing, meeting, and small event spaces. Please check the calendar under the "Village Crier" tab above or our Facebook site for current events and meeting locations!

Marble Surface

Joan Barrett-Roberts

Moments catches the morning dew
sunlight streams through
my eyes see
dawn floating through
the close knitted trees
winds hushed by window panes
and shadows casting its touch
outlining my hands as I write
something inside
pointing the way
to say . . . I see
it’s gone
