Dear SCWG members,
For July 18, we are tentatively having our first in-person, post-COVID-19 meeting that will be streamed on Zoom. The in-person meeting is to be held at the Eau Gallie Public Library. (see the Meeting Announcement, above). We don't have a guest speaker, but our Webmaster Dan Fisher will talk to you about computer security: “I’m just a lowly author. Who would want to hack into my computer?”
During this COVID-19 situation, I have chosen to pay attention only to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Johns Hopkins University (a teaching and research facility), President Trump, and Governor DeSantis. We will abide by their recommendations.
All of these sources have been recommending caution, especially with at-risk persons. We are still in a declared National Emergency concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak. In it, among other things, the President urged the cancelation of events involving groups of people, and urged “social distancing.”
PLEASE! DO NOT MAKE CRITICAL HEALTH DECISIONS BASED ON POLITICAL SPEECHES OR SOCIAL MEDIA!
President, Space Coast Writers’ Guild
Welcome to the Space Coast Writers' Guild, Inc., dedicated to encouraging, instructing, and developing writers of all genres. If this is your first visit, please take a moment to explore all we have to offer.
Transforming wishes into reality and ideas into words, we offer a variety of programs and speakers at our monthly meetings.
You'll have an opportunity to work with others who are dealing with deadlines, characters who won't cooperate, rejections, re-writes, contract dilemmas, unresponsive editors, and agent searches.
Whether you have been published for years and in several different languages, or are pre-published and hoping, the Guild has something for you!
The Guild meets on the third Saturday of each month at 1 PM at the Eau Gallie Public Library, 1521 Pineapple Ave., Melbourne, Florida 32935.
Meetings begin with a brief business meeting, including announcements, welcome of new members, introduction of the Board members, and treasurer's report. A presentation of some aspect of writing, by our monthly speaker, follows.
For the duration of the COVID-19 Pandemic, refreshments will not be provided, and social distancing will be enforced.
