River City Writers

With more than half a century’s combined experience in writing and editing, Christopher Golden and James A. Moore bring their shared love of the written word to all they do. In recent years, the Haverhill, Massachusetts-based authors and editors have expanded their repertoire to include events like the wildly successful Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival and area workshops like the Writers Coffeehouse New England. Now Golden and Moore launch RIVER CITY WRITERS, a company offering book-and-writing-related events, workshops in all areas of writing and publishing, focused and intimate writing retreats, and by popular demand, premium editorial and consultation services.

RIVER CITY WRITERS debuts in 2016 with events including the 2nd Annual Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival, the continuation of the free Writers Coffeehouse New England series, and a combination of single afternoon and multi-day workshops. Golden and Moore will both be offering selective editorial and consultation services as their own busy writing schedules allow.
