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If you are a writer (published or unpublished) affiliated with Manassas, Manassas Park or Prince William County, consider officially joining.
Spilled Ink is an open mic night that celebrates the written word. Join local authors, poets, and scribblers as they read their work. All are welcome to listen or read. The event is held at Jirani Coffee House every fourth Friday of the month from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Please revise work to a PG-13 rating prior to reading!
