Write by the Rails
Raising the Profile
of the Local Literary Community
Write by the Rails (WbtR) is the Prince William Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. We aim to raise the profile of the local literary community and explore ways we can nurture, cultivate and help that community grow.
We strive to be an integral part of the larger arts community and to enhance the quality of life for residents of the area by providing them with the opportunity to participate in events and activities that promote writing, literacy and self-expression.
If you are a writer (published or unpublished) affiliated with Manassas, Manassas Park or Prince William County, consider officially joining.
Join WbtR at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 13, 2021 on Zoom when we feature prolific author and publisher Martin Wilsey who will present "Publishing Your Books on Audio." This event is free and open to the public. Get the meeting link by joining our mailing list to receive our regular emails, reminders and Zoom details. Click here.
