The Charles County Chapter of the Maryland Writers’ Association meets at 7pm on the third Wednesday of every month (except August and December) at the College of Southern Maryland’s La Plata campus at 8730 Mitchell Road (BI 214).

Wednesday, Jan. 18: Monthly meeting – “Beginnings” Share your favorite beginning (first lines or first paragraphs) and tell us why you love it. This can be from a poem, a short story, a novel, or a memoir.

Wednesday, Jan. 25: Book Group – Kill ‘Em and Leave by James McBride

Wednesday, Feb. 15: Monthly meeting with guest speaker Neal Dwyer


Meetings are free if you’re a Maryland Writers’ Association member. If not, your first meeting is free and subsequent meetings are $5. Really, it’s cheaper to join MWA, and you get a lot more for your money.
