Covid 19 Update

For the time being, in-person events including our Monthly Meeting and the Brazos Valley Book Report will be conducted via Zoom.

Visit our Events page, select the event and scroll down to fill out the registration form.

We can now provide replays of our monthly meetings for members that cannot attend live and can more easily invite guests outside of the Brazos Valley. If you have an idea for a meeting topic or guest, please let us know! 

In-person critique groups
If you are part of an in-person critique group, we ask that you please consider moving to an online format. We understand that this may be daunting. Please reach out to for guidance on choosing and setting up online tools that will work best for your group.
