Brazos Writers meets monthly on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the
Brazos Center, 3232 Briarcrest in Bryan, Texas.
The board of directors usually meets at 6:00 pm prior to the general meeting.
Brazos Writers is a not-for-profit organization for writers in the Brazos Valley. We support, educate and encourage anyone who is interested in the written word.
May Monthly Meeting
The May general meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 8. Dr. Paul Ruffin, 2009 Texas Poet Laureate, will share his experiences as state poet and offer guidance for creating poetic language in your writing. Please join us for this exciting opportunity to hear a poet laureate discuss poetry.
June Monthly Meeting
The June general meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 12. It will feature open readings by members and first-time visitors. Readers may ask for critique or simply applause. If you choose to write (however obliquely) on the month's theme, Wedded, you will be entered in a prize drawing for the evening. Come and read, or come and listen -- either way, you'll meet fellow writers and have fun.
News and Events
Brazos Writers welcomes and encourages visitors. Membership has its benefits, though, so consider paying the meager annual dues and joining up.
Here is our 2013 calendar so you can see what we have done and what we will be doing. We plan to hold several Saturday morning workshops, seminars, road trips, and other events this year, so check back in to this page and the calendar often to see what's coming up.
Members, don't forget the Writing forums once a month. Find out more at a general meeting or by contacting one of the officers.Holiday Story links. Here’s the link to the Brazos Writers round-robin Christmas story for those of you who’d like to review it in more detail than was possible during the quick read-through at our December meeting. Thanks to all the writers who contributed, and particularly to Mark Troy both for adding both a great finish to the story and creating a commentary on the story at the same time!
Author visits in BCS. In the name of authors supporting authors, consider attending author visits and book signings in our area. The BCS Library system has held several author visits in the past, including Brazos Writers past president Nancy Stebbins in April. Check out the library’s author visit website at http://www.bcslibrary.org/?page_id=7472 for more information. Author signings are happening all around town, from Carousel Paperbacks to Barnes & Noble. Stop by for a chat or, even better, a signed book purchase.
More info. Our February 2012 program by Charlie Lindahl taught us much about creating eBooks. See Ebooks for Writers here.
BW workshops on tap. Workshops are in the planning stages for more workshops, and topics for workshops, writing retreats, road trips, and conferences are welcome. Feel free to suggest topics to any BW board member, and check back to this website or Brazos Writers Facebook page to find updated information.
