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.
November General Meeting
Elements of Fiction
The elements of fiction - how many are there and what are they? A recent website described 77 different elements! Fortunately, some elements are more important than others. The six major elements of fiction are character, plot, point of view, setting, style, and theme. This presentation will discuss these six elements, along with a few others, as they pertain to an apocalyptic short story titled "A Wall Between Here and There."

2015 SCWG Conference: A Book in a Day
Saturday, January 31, 2015
Start the day with a fresh set of ideas and finish the day with a published book!
New for 2015, the 33rd Annual Space Coast Writers’ Conference will take full advantage of new technology to collaborate on a book that will include brainstorming story ideas, collaborative writing, agile editing, graphic design, online book production, and social media marketing. We’ll teach you how to take advantage of the Kindle Direct Program to get a book created faster than ever before.
There’s no experience necessary – just come ready to write and have fun. By the end of the conference, you’ll be a published author. How’s that for a day well spent?
Registration is now open! Just $75 and you’re part of the party. For more details, visit www.SCWG.org or contact the SCWG President, Scott Tilley, at email@example.com for full details. Seats are limited; don’t wait until it’s too late!
