The purpose of the River Writer's Group (RWG) is to promote the art of writing and to further the cause of reading andwriting. If you love to write or want to be published, this is the group you want to be associated with. The members offer each other support and constructive criticism on writings, provide presentations by our members on subjects of interest for writers and hold informal discussions. Some of the topics are, but not limited to:
- Query Letters
- Finding an Agent
- Self Publishing
- Grammar and Punctuation
- Writing Styles
On occasion, we have guest speakers. Also, once a year, several authors/writers form a discussion panel for a symposium at Mohave Community College, Bullhead City Campus. Our intention is to inspire new writers in the area.
The RWG is open to anyone residing in the Tri-State area (Nevada, Arizona, and California). Writers who come to our community to "winter over" -- locally known as "Snowbirds" -- are also welcome. There are no fees or dues of any kind. If you love to write, you are welcome here! Every genre is represented here, from well-known published Authors to writers who are just thinking of writing a book, poetry, song lyrics and/or short stories. Sometimes we have 4 or 5 writers at our meetings and other times we have 20 or more!
We meet at the Mohave Community College located in Bullhead City, Arizona on the first Tuesday of every month from 1:00 to 3:00 pm and on the third Tuesday of every month from 6 to 7:45 pm.
The RWG website is a place for members to promote our Group and our individual authors. Once you are published you will be able to post your works for the general public to see, world-wide. We provide known links to individual author websites as well as where your books are sold and/or promoted. For this purpose, a form is available for published authors to submit information to be posted.
Those authors who already have published works are available in our ecatalog by clicking here. The list changes frequently and links are there taking you further to the specific book listed. Included in the book descriptions, a short bio is provided.
All genres are acceptable, we do not allow works of pornography, or that which promote hate or illegal activities.
