In our non-stop quest to bring more writer’s resources to you, we present this humble collection of West Virginia writers groups. It’s by no means complete–it never will be–but we strive to keep the writers groups by state pages updated as often as possible. If you don’t see YOUR West Virginia writers’ group listed here, please drop us a line and let us know. We’d love to add you to the list! Send all the important details to us at editor(at)freelance (dash) zone (dot com).
Sadly, not every state has as many resources for writers as New York, California, or Texas, but the resources that are available in the smaller states are just as important to the writing communities there. New West Virginia writers groups are welcome to submit their information, too! We’d love to know about a fledgling group of writers and lend support by listing you on this page…
