Join us the third Saturday of every month at 10:00 AM, for our SCWA monthly Zoom Meeting, where we enjoy networking, hear dynamic and accomplished speakers that inspire and support our development, and embolden us to face the times we live in, and write! Writers since history began, have been the chroniclers of the times, you are the chroniclers of these times - whether here in the present, or in a historical period, or in a galaxy far, far away, we as writers are the people who have carried the record of our triumphs and our failures, and we continue going forward. Join us and be a part of the noblest of professions, a writer.

We look forward to meeting you and hope you’ll join us! We have an active Facebook group that is open to anyone. Like Us on Facebook >
