"I love the Long Writers Group. The in-depth critiques have been a great resource to improve my science fiction writing." -WR Platt

"SWG is a welcoming place to meet and interact with creative writers and poets." – Gloria Arthur


2020 Suncoast Writers Guild 30th Anniversary Luncheon

​Suncoast Writers Guild (SWG) offers an eclectic mix of beginner, intermediate and seasoned writers representing many genres – authors, poets, essayists, journalists, and others – from various backgrounds.

Suncoast Writers is all about supporting the writer. We work to make you a better writer and help to identify opportunities for your work to be read by the wider world.
You are cordially invited to attend a General Meeting, or a Readers Workshop to see if SWG is the right fit. Visit us in person at the Elsie Quirk Library, or consider sitting in on a Zoom meeting by contacting SWG via email at

We understand how much courage it takes for new members to leave the solitary comfort of their space and lay bare their writing for all to see. Therefore, new members are welcome to simply listen and observe at a Readers Workshop until they feel comfortable enough to share their work. Our members are always respectful and happy to offer constructive advice. In this environment of like-minded creative people, writers gain confidence and improve their skills. Many have gone on to be published, nominated for prestigious awards, and won contests. See a sampling on the Our Authors Page.

SWG offers programs from industry experts, reader workshops, poetry pod, long writers critique group, and more. Check the Meetings tab to explore our meeting options.
