Because of the coronavirus, we have suspended in-person  meetings until further notice. Our meetings are currently being held via Zoom. The good news is that now you have time to finish your novel, polish your poems and let your literary muse run free. And, as one member reminded me, don't forget to journal this disastrous time, for someday your notes may reappear in one of your literary works of art. 
Please stay healthy until we meet in person again.

Englewood, Florida

The Suncoast Writers Guild is proud to be associated with the Florida Writers Association.


General Meeting:
We hold a general meeting at 10:00 a.m. the first Saturday of every month from October through May.  A short business meeting is followed by a guest speaker.  At this time, the meetings are being held on Zoom. 

​​Poetry Pod:
Our poets meet on the second and fourth Friday of every month at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom. Those who wish to learn about and share their poetry meet to encourage one another, share comments and suggestions, or just listen. 

Long Writers Group
A small group of members who are writing longer  works, either fiction or nonfiction, meet on the second Saturday of the month on Zoom. Members of this group share their work and offer suggestions to each other.

On the third Saturday of each month at 10:00 am, members meet on Zoom to read aloud and to critique one another's writing. The group includes beginning and advanced writers, journalists, poets, novelists, short-story authors and essayists from various backgrounds. Prospective members are welcome to read, if time permits, without joining, for one meeting only.
