SCWG and COVID-19

  The Space Coast Writers' Guild values each and every one of its members. To this effect, the Guild has suspended all activities until the danger from COVID-19 has passed. The Board is looking into virtual activities, including online meetings. Please watch this space and emails from President Joanne Fisher for updates. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy. Do not fall prey to scams, which are 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/

Welcome to SCWG

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.

What Is the Space Coast Writers' Guild?

We're all about writers and writing

Transforming wishes into reality and ideas into words, we offer a variety of programs and speakers at our monthly meetings.

Networking

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.  

Something for everyone

Whether you have been published for years and in several different languages, or are pre-published and hoping, the Guild has something for you!

Meetings

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.

March 21, 2020 Meeting CANCELED

A message from our president, Joanne Fisher

Dear SCWG members,


I have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation. I have had people strongly urge me to both cancel and not cancel the March meeting. There has been a lot of information and misinformation being bandied about. I have chosen to pay attention only to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Johns Hopkins University (a teaching and research facility), and the President of the United States.


All of these sources have been recommending caution, especially with at-risk persons. Today, our President declared a 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.”


Therefore, based on the above information, and ONLY on the above information, I have made the very difficult decision to cancel the March 21, 2020 Space Coast Writers’ Guild meeting.


Currently, the April meeting is tentative, based on the same criteria listed above. As I obtain information on the state of the COVID-19 outbreak in April, I will keep the Guild posted.


PLEASE! DO NOT MAKE CRITICAL HEALTH DECISIONS BASED ON POLITICAL SPEECHES OR SOCIAL MEDIA!

Be well! 

Joanne Fisher
