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.

Planning for 2016: What Topics Do You Want YOUR Guild to Cover?
Kit Adams (Vice-President, SCWG) will be leading a brainstorming session with you, the members, on what type of talks you’d like to hear in the rest of the year. Kit (and the rest of the Board) will go over possible topics, and then open the floor to a discussion. Our 2016 conference on January 30 will also be discussed - register soon!
We regret that the SCWG’s 2016 “Book in a Day” conference has been canceled. For those of you who had registered, you will receive a refund on your credit card. It may take a few days to process.
February General Meeting
On February 20th, Richard and Cheri Martin, co-founders of WCN Interactive, Inc, will present "Social Media Strategies for Authors.”
Let's face it, you'd rather be writing instead of marketing - right? Well, I bet you want book sales too? That is why it is necessary to build a large online community to effectively promote your book so you can generate sales. The question is - how? We will share a variety of strategic ways you can use social media marketing effectively so you Connect, Communicate and Convert PLUS find the time to write and juggle 'life'!
