May 3 and 4 are busy days for us!

Heads up!  Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4, Write by the Rails members will be taking part in a myriad of local activities.  Join us in readings, signings, discussion and art appreciation!

May 3

6-9:30 pm

  • Members will be reading in Authors Alley during the Manassas Gallery Walk (on the terrace behind The Things I Love, 9084-9086 Center Street). Stroll around Old Town Manassas, check out local art, do some shopping, and then listen to readings by your fellow railers. 
7 pm
  • Rodney Jordan, author of Tired of Being Black, will be reading and signing his book at Prospero's Books (9129 Center St.) during the Gallery Walk. 

7 pm and beyond

  • Take part in Open Mic Night at Deja Brew (5311 Merchants View Square, Haymarket).  Share your best short fiction, poetry, shopping lists or political rants. The mic opens at 7:00, and we’ll stay up as late as we must to get everyone a shot at airing out their scribbles. Oh, and these days, Deja Brew serves wine and beer to accompany all your favorite desserts and high-test coffees. Hosted by Piedmont Writers.
