As of January 1, 2022, we officially become the
Pennwriters helping fellow Pennwriters grow and accomplish their writing goals.
Are you the 1 in 60 who is determined
to produce quality fiction or nonfiction?
Are you striving to learn, understand, and practice
all you can about writing well and telling a story well
and employing the devices and techniques
that make a work stand out in today's glutted marketplace
but need guidance and feedback?
IF SO —
We, the SVP-C, have evolved into an eclectic, focused Pennwriters sub-group whose priority is to continually learn and practice story craft and
to uncover the secrets and elite practices that beget outstanding works
to meet industry standards and reader acclaim.
Our emphasis is on quality over quantity. Our meetings use online technology
plus scheduled in-person meetings, craft-specific mini-workshops,
book reviews, movies, and discussions. Questions on craft and the industry
are answered. Monthly challenges are strictly volunteer —
these short works not only spur the imagination
but they also generate and showcase
improvements in an individual's writing
and yielded works for submission to contests
and paying markets.
Pennwriters members from any area of Pennwriters
are welcome to join in our conversation and activities,

The SVP (Shenango Valley Pennwriters) in Area 1 was founded 2008 as part of Pennwriters Inc whose mission is to help writers of all levels, from the novice to the award-winning and multi-published, improve and succeed in their craft. Established in 1988, Pennwriters is a not-for-profit organization of more than 400 members from Pennsylvania and beyond (which are designated by geographic areas).
