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.


Upcoming Events

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.

September General Meeting

J.P. Osterman will discuss the sources she uses to base her science-fiction stories, scientists and writers who have influenced her, and how to keep fantastic story elements relatable to readers. She will examine sci-fi devices from TV shows and technologies on the horizon, tying in excerpts from her short story, "The Mons Genius." She'll also read from Jack London's "To Build a Fire," which she hopes will inspire participants to create their own sci-fi or fantasy world. Letís begin the adventure!

*According to requirements of the American Disability Act (ADA), organizations using library meeting rooms may be required to provide special accommodations for those citizens requesting assistance within 48 hours of the scheduled meeting time. Organizations are required to provide hearing devices and/or make special arrangements at the citizenís request.
