Celebrating the arts at Smith Mountain Lake 

for over 30 years

Lake Writers

The Lake Writers is a group of writers from around the Smith Mountain Lake area that was founded in 2000 and meets under the auspices of The Smith Mountain Arts Council. The group includes writers of fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry. Some are published writers, and some aspire to get their work published. It is also a satellite chapter of the Virginia Writers Club.

A typical meeting will include a dozen or so writers. The first hour is usually spent sharing information on writing opportunities, contests, and getting published. In the second hour, any writer who wants to read from his or her work for 10-15 minutes is invited to read and receive an instant critique from the other writers. The Lake Writers usually present two or three programs to the public each year. They also organize and run an annual writing contest for middle and high school students.

The group meets on the second Friday of each month at 10:00 a.m. at the Moneta/Smith Mountain Lake Library, and the fourth Friday of each month at 10:00 a.m. at the Smith Mountain Lake Association office, 400 Scruggs Road (Lower level beneath Old Oak Cafe).
