Rockville Area Critique Group

Genre: Mainstream Fiction
Leader: Judy Kelly, [email protected] (301) 929-0959
The Rockville Writers Group is composed of fiction writers. Even though we identify ourselves as novel writers, members write short stories and nonfiction, as well. We meet the fourth Saturday of each month and in member homes on a rotating basis.

The Rockville Writers Group is currently closed to new members. In order to maintain a good balance in the group, we prefer a published or advanced writer who has published something in fiction, or written more than one novel, or written several short stories. At the present time, we are not looking for thriller, mystery, or crime writers. We prefer someone who is writing mainstream fiction (a good character story) or literary fiction.
