Based on the responses that Joanne received from the membership, she has cancelled all in-person meetings. For the short term, we are holding meetings virtually. The May meeting was held via Zoom on May 16, and was a resounding success! We also continue to keep in touch with our members via email. If you are a SCWG member and have not been receiving Joanne's emails, please click here and let us know. We will put you on the email list.
Please watch this space, along with emails from President Joanne Fisher for updates. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy. Do not fall prey to COVID-19 and IRS scams, which are extremely plentiful now. Get your information only from reputable sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov, or the State of Florida. https://www.myflorida.com/

Dear SCWG members,
The next meeting will occur on June 20 at 1 P.M., via Zoom video conferencing. Kit Adams, our vice president, will conduct this virtual meeting. Joanne, Jim, and Cindy will be presenting at the Authors for Authors conference at Hilton at Rialto in Melbourne. All are invited to attend.
The meeting will last about one-half hour. Keep an eye on this space for the link which will be posted as soon as we have it.
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 DiSantis. 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 Garrett's Run Condo Association Clubhouse, 7900 Greenboro Drive in West Melbourne.
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.
Afterwards, there is a time for socializing and book signings. Snacks are always provided.
