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.
