Space Coast Writers’ Guild


Welcome to the Space Coast Writers’ Guild, Inc. We are 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.

Space Coast Writers’ Guild



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 segment, including announcements, welcome of new members, introduction of the board members, and treasurer’s report. A presentation of some aspect of writing, by a guest speaker, follows.

Our Next Meeting: February 19, 2022

One of the most challenging aspects of writing is the dialogue your characters engage in. You can have the most riveting plot, but if the dialogue is humdrum, your readers are going to close your book and regift it. How do you liven it up?

The answer is simple. Come to the February SCWG meeting, where Joni Fisher will hold a Dialogue Workshop. This interactive session will show us how to engage our readers with compelling back-and-forth that will keep them turning the pages to see what happens next!

As usual, we will convene at the Eau Gallie Public Library in the meeting room for this in-person presentation. Enter through the main doors and make an immediate right turn. Again, the address is 1521 Pineapple Avenue, Melbourne, FL 32935.

A Word From Our President

Joanne Fisher

Welcome to the new and improved website for the Space Coast Writers’ Guild! The website we’ve had for a couple years has served us very well. But it had its limitations, and we were bumping up against those limitations. Primarily, our webmaster and Vice President Dan Fisher ran out of space to put our authors on that page. So, he has spent the past couple months working with Robin McDonald of MacRed Designs redesigning and rebuilding the website from the ground up.

Some folks say, “Well, it should only take an hour or so to build a website.” That may be true, but if this was to be done right it needed to be planned out, piece by piece, as one would plan out and design a house.

Please take your time to peruse the website. If you haven’t yet, please send your author information to Dan at the link below. He will need a good quality headshot photo (with light colored background), a listing of your latest book, or your last few books, and a short bio. It should be no more than 100 words.

Joanne Fisher
President, Space Coast Writers’ Guild
