WVU Groups Looking for Members

Novel Writers' Group

What is it that makes a novel great? What is it that keeps you turning pages long after the sun goes down and the gentle call of slumber beckons? To be sure, a great novel has engaging characters, riveting tension and wondrous settings. But getting to that point has less to do with magic or a brilliant talent, and more to do with hard work and peer review.

Do you have a novel that you know has great potential to keep readers turning pages? Is it already on paper or just an idea? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work? Then you need to join the Novel Writer's group, and surround yourself with passionate writers willing to review and critique your work, so you can polish it into the brilliant gem it was meant to be.
