Write ON the Rails

2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0

Come on out for a train ride and a concentrated writing session with your fellow writers. Meet at the Vienna Metro out front at 11 a.m. Or to carpool, meet at the Amtrak station in Manassas at 10 a.m. We’ll hop on the Metro in Vienna, where we’ll have the opportunity to monopolize a car for the whole route to New Carrollton. Bring your notebooks, pens, laptops, phones….whatever will encourage you to write for a couple of hours with no interruptions. Writing prompts will be available for inspiration.

Once we return, we’ll head over to Okras’s Cajun Creole in Historic Manassas, where WbtR was formed in August of 2011. Enjoy some great Cajun food with your fellow writers as we share what we got done on the ride.

Can’t come for the ride? Plan to meet us at Okra’s around 2 p.m.

Members and non-members welcome. Plan to pay for your Metro ticket and meal independently. A one-day Metro pass is $14.75.
