Space Coast Writers’ Guild
About the 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.
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.
There’s 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!
SCWG currently has approximately 100 members, about one third of which have published books. Members are encouraged to attend monthly meetings and are invited to participate in critique groups, workshops, contests, conferences, and other SCWG activities. Membership is an excellent way to network, learn and promote your work!
We appreciate your enrollment!
SCWG memberships will auto-renew on your credit or debit card every 12 months. You can easily cancel your membership at any time by clicking on the UNSUBSCRIBE button at the bottom of any scwg.org e-mail. (Please note: There are no partial-year refunds).

Jaimie Engle is a screenwriter, speaker, and award-winning author. Her character-driven stories set in worlds here and beyond explore the need for redemption, family, and the power of self, sometimes told with a pinch of magic.

She was an alien on Seaquest. Please visit Jaimie’s website.
