“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you,” ~ Maya Angelou

Writers Groups

Not sure where to start? Attend one of our writing groups.

The New Richmond and Williamsburg Branch Libraries both offer a group where writers meet to:

  • share their work
  • polish their craft
  • network
  • and write

Sharing ideas out loud might be the inspiration you need to start writing.

The New Richmond River City Writer’s Group meets on the first and third Mondays of the month at 6 PM. For more information, call 553-0570.

The Williamsburg Writing Group meets meets the first and third Monday of every month at 6:30 PM. For more information, call 724-1070.

Writers Resources

writeIf writing at home is difficult because of distractions, come to the library. We have free WiFi, computers, and space for you to sit with your laptop or tablet.

Still stuck? Browse our multitude of books and eBooks dedicated to the art of writing or ask our staff to help you with background research on the subject of your story. Don’t forget to check out our website under the eLibrary banner and scope out our many digital resources and databases.

And of course, many of our branches carry the Writer’s Market series which is designed to help writers get published whatever they write. The current year is generally a reference item that stays in the library but copies from last year are available for check out.

We also have author visits or other creative writing related events. Visit our Events page for an up-to-date list of all of our classes and workshops.
