Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers
of Hampton Roads

Online Only.
We’re speculative fiction writers (science fiction, fantasy and more). We share our experiences and adventures in reading, writing, craft development and publishing with each other, and become better writers through it all.




757 Comic and Cartoon Creators

In-Person and Virtual!
757 Comic and Cartoon Creators is a community group for local artists, specifically those interested in creating comics and animation. Looking for feedback on your current project? Want to network or maybe collaborate with another creator?  Searching for some like-minded creatives to chat with? Need a space to just unwind and doodle? Come check us out. Writers are welcome as well.

This monthly meet-up is a lively and productive session of prompts, sharing, and workshopping. Come be inspired to write, revise, and move closer to publication. This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves poetry and wants to share their work with others.



Fantastical Worlds: A Writing Group for Speculative Fiction

In-Person Only
This is a chance to get together with not just other writers but with fantasy writers –those of us who revel in wardrobe doors and rabbit holes, who would rather work on inventing a language than learning French, who long for something this world doesn’t offer. Come on in, the water’s warm and the fairies are friendly!



Wednesday Wordsmiths!

In-Person Only
Join us every Wednesday from 5-7pm for an inspiring and collaborative writing experience. Whether you’re a seasoned wordsmith or just starting your literary journey, our group welcomes all. Bring your latest writings to share or dive into our engaging exercises and prompts designed to spark your imagination.



Wednesday Wordsmiths: Screenwriting Edition

In-Person Only
Every Fourth Wednesday from 5-7pm, the Wednesday Wordsmiths will break out their screenwriting chops. You do not have to be writing a screenplay to participate, but writers will share their work via a table reading and feedback will be given.




The Scribes; A Club for Writers 18-25

 In-Person and Virtual!
Are you a young adult, college student or otherwise, looking to meet fellow writers? Then join us every 4th Sunday, in-person at the Muse Writers Center or online via Zoom. The club will be a mix of writing and socializing, with a critique section near the beginning of meetings. Open to anyone 18-25 interested in any form of creative writing, including fiction, poetry, screenwriting, songwriting, creative nonfiction, and comics. No writing experience necessary.




Writers on Submission

In-Person and Virtual!
Are you a writer with more rejections then acceptances? Did you recently start querying agents? Do you want a place to share your publishing successes? Join Writers on Submission every 3rd Friday of each month from 9:30-11:30, to get feedback on work and discuss the highs and lows of the publishing world.
