What We Do
Back Roads Literary Review is a twice a year publication of vetted short stories. The Review is a product created by the Marion County Writers Workshop.
Services include helping writers of fiction and memoir get critiqued and published. We assist writers with narrative structure and content, copy editing, story pacing, plot, and other tools of the writer’s toolbox.
Who we are
We are writers who also own a commercial winery in Iowa, Nearwood Winery & Vineyards. Our winery serves as home base for writers and their books. We host free, weekly meetings (in-person or online) of the Marion County Writers Workshop. Wine and writing just seem to go together.
