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 and fellowship.

Our monthly member's meetings are held at the Bella Vista Public Library in Bella Vista, AR from 1:00 to 3:00 on the second Wednesday of each month. Check the calendar for dates, times, and locations.

We also have critique groups, writing groups, a poetry circle, a genealogy group... you name it, we either have it or better yet, we give you the opportunity to create your own group or community. 

In the news: at this month's members and board meeting, we unanimously agreed to charge a $30 annual fee for members to help offset operating expenses. 

Open call for directors! Want to help us grow? We need the following volunteers immediately: vice-president, treasurer, membership director, events director, and scholarship director. Write: bvvillagewriters@gmail.com
