Why should you join the East Village Writers?
A great question! What better way for you to grow in your writing than sharing your work with like-minded individuals who will provide you with thoughtful feedback?

We will not edit your work. However, your story or poem that you submit to our annual anthology will be processed through 20 criteria and if it reaches 75% or above 17 number of the criteria, we will publish it.
When do we meet?
We have online meetings via SKYPE each month and use an electronic round robin method for sharing our stories/poems amongst members.

These electronic stories/poems will be reviewed by the members and all critiques are to be completed by the fourth Tuesday of the month, and shared with our membership during our online meeting.
