    Open to the public and free.

    Any person under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend this or any other GLVWG event.




    Come to the Writers Cafe and get instant feedback about your work. All levels are represented from new writers to seasoned professionals.

    If you would like a Read and Critique, bring about 500-700 words to read to the group and get instant feedback about your work.  Any genre, fiction or non-fiction, poetry, screenplays or memoirs are all welcome.

    500-700 words is 2+ pages TNR 12 point font, double spaced, 1" margins all around.

    NOTE NEW READING LIMIT ==> We will be limited to 20 readers.  You can still join the meeting, but only the first 20 to register will be able to read their work. There will be a waitlist, so have something available to read in case someone doesn't show up.

    Readers will be randomly assigned to one of 2 "Reading Rooms" with a host to keep things going.

    Readings will be 11 minutes (more or less).

    700 words takes about 5-6 minutes to read, so be wise how you use your 11 (more or less)minutes.

    Total registration will be limited to 25, because more than that would be impossible to manage.

    We will be using Zoom, and you will get an invitation via email when you register, and again the day of the Cafe.

    • Zoom is pretty easy to use, though it does have a lot of features. (No, we don't care if you wear an old sweatshirt!)
    • There are many Zoom tutorials on YouTube, so you should be able to find one that works for you.
    • At the Cafe you will be expected to handle your own session.
    • Be sure to enable your video, anyone joining without video will be kicked off.
    • Meeting will start at 6:50. Be prompt!
    • For security reasons meeting will be LOCKED at 7:10!

    Schmooze with fellow writers and meet some GLVWG members.

    Guy Olivieri:

    Writers Police Academy Abridged

    The morning program is an exceptionally unique experience for writers to enhance their understanding of all aspects of law enforcement, crime scene procedures, and forensics with crime scene and fingerprint expert retired Detective Guy T. Olivieri.

    This workshop will help participants understand crime scene investigation procedures, and will enable writers to tell their crime and mystery stories accurately and with greater detail. We will discover how bad television has made for bad understanding of law. From demonstrations, to case studies, to Q&A, this will be an educational and entertaining experience. The Q&A will allow writers’ access to an expert that can help move their stories forward.

    Crime Scene Investigation in a Nutshell

    Part two will feature more crime scene methods and studies such as a brief look at blood stain patterns, time of death, and one of Guy’s other expertise, Forensic Entomology (the study of how insects help solve crimes). Last, we will put out our new knowledge to the test by solving a homicide/mystery meticulously detailed in a dollhouse diorama form by Francis Glessner Lee. Guy will present rare photos of one (or maybe two) of FGL’s miniature crime scenes for the class to solve.
