Welcome to the Space Coast Writers' Guild, dedicated to encouraging, instructing and developing writers of all genres. We're all about writers and writing, transforming wishes into reality, ideas into words.
We offer a variety of programs and speakers at our monthly meetings, along with an opportunity to meet others who are dealing with deadlines, characters who won't cooperate, rejections, re-writes, contract dilemmas, unresponsive editors, and agent searches. Whether you have published for years and in several different languages, or are pre-published and hoping, the Guild has something for you. If this is your first visit, please take a moment to explore all we have to offer from the menus above.
The Main Meetings of the Guild are held the third Saturday of each month at 1 pm. at the Garrett's Run Condo Association Clubhouse, 7900 Greenboro Drive in West Melbourne (directions). Meetings begin with a brief business meeting with announcements, welcome of new members, introduction of the Board members and treasurer's report, followed by a presentation of some aspect of writing by our monthly speaker. Following the speaker, there is a time for socializing and book signings.
Don Argo Award
From the president:
I'm very pleased to announce that the SCWG is reviving our writing contest for the Don Argo award again this year. The Don Argo Award was first presented in 2010. It recognizes the best in Florida writing by SCWG members in memory of beloved educator, author of Canaveral Light, founding member of the Space Coast Writers’ Guild, and longtime Florida resident Don Argo. If you have written a book set in Florida or know of another author you would like to recommend for the award, please see our submission guidelines.
On August 20th, Jacob Demers will be speaking on "A Writer’s Experiences Creating and Marketing Audiobooks"
