Vivian Montgomery

I am a harpsichordist and accordionist who writes. My writing centers around memory, being an uneasy transplant, living and teaching music, excavation of long-buried women musicians (one particular historical fiction project), my mother, and Judaism. My personal essays have been published in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, Bluestem, Ligeia, Adanna, Chautauqua Review, Jabberwock Review, MERVOX, Shark Reef (upcoming) and in the anthology “Mother Reader” issued by Seven Stories Press. My story “Immersion” has received a Writers Digest Prize for Spiritual Writing, and was a finalist for New Letters’ Conger Beasley Jr. Award for Nonfiction. I am a brooding walker and mother, feeling her way with the help of words spilled onto the page. I've been a member of an informal writers group in the past and also have a regular exchange of work with another writer friend but I'd like to have a more consistent and diverse group that reads one another's writing, asks questions, and finds affinity where it exists.

Ana Chevalier

I'm a full-time freelance writer. I work mostly within legal, technology, and financial verticals. In my 'off' hours, I'm a fiction writer. While I have written (and published) several books and multiple plays, short fiction is my first love and remains my preferred literary vehicle for storytelling. I'm thrilled to have recently pivoted away from the world of journalism with an increased focus on short fiction :-)

Miriam Polli

I'm a native New Yorker, and when in New York, I belonged to a few writer's groups.  Since I've moved to Virginia, I've experienced one group as a "therapy" group with compliments, compliments of everyone's work without any constructive criticism or craft talk.  I find it most helpful to be in a group with like-minded writers who are serious about their work and are looking towards some kind of publication.  I'm a published author of short stories, poetry and my first novel was published back in 2015.  I can hardly believe 6 years have gone by, and I'm just finishing up my second novel.  I'm a slow writer and believe in letting my work percolate before facing the fearful white page.  I would so like to find a group where we can all grow together as writers and poets.

DavidWilliamAllman

I am retired and in my 70s. When I started writing in my teens, it was short sy-fi tales or poetry. Since retiring, I have re-ignited my interest in writing, but now I write historical fiction. The Chasseen Legends, a family saga in based in 4000BC, was my first attempt at a trilogy. Since there is no sex or gore, I was told my genre is YA Adventure books that are plot-driven, not character-driven. So here I am, starting another trilogy about a family saga in 1600s.

Most of my writing has revolved around essays, periodical writings, scholarships, and grant writings. I enjoy those type of writings. However, I would really love to learn how to write to an audience on a more personal level with memoirs, literary fictions, historical fictions, and address youn adult issues through storytelling.
