Next Meetings: 8/17, 9/21, 10/19

I can’t wait to see everyone on Wednesday, August 17 at 6:30.

Here’s your latest writing prompt:

It’s raining. Hard. Lightning flashes, thunder claps simultaneously. You jump, check your heartbeat, then settle down at your keyboard and write til the storm passes. What do you say?  (Okay, this this scenario isn’t too hard to imagine in Central Florida considering we named a hockey team after it!)

On another note, I want to remind everyone of the upcoming FWA Annual Writers Conference and FWF (Florida Writers Foundation) Workshops and Fundraisers and the FWA Youth Conference on October 22.

Florida Writers Association (FWA) members all over the globe look forward to the Florida Writers Conference year after year.

Whether you’re an aspiring writer or a seasoned professional, you’ll benefit from all the conference has to offer you this year. Rub elbows with acquisition editors, publishers, editors, designers, book marketers and writers, into the wee hours. Connect with old friends and make new ones.

Fun and informative, your conference days will be packed from early morning until late at night with plenty to keep you busy.
