Welcome to Florida Star Fiction Writers

 

Welcome to Florida Star Fiction Writers, based on Florida’s Space Coast.

Monthly meetings and workshops provide a comfortable forum where published and unpublished writers share knowledge about the ever-changing publishing industry. Whether you are a beginner with just the glimmer of a story in mind or a seasoned, multi-published writer, or whether you are indie or traditionally published, our group has something for you. Though we were founded by romance writers, our group is open to any adult writing fiction.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and ability.

 

Meetings

We usually meet on the 4th Saturday of every month from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. During the pandemic, some meetings are being held online. Members should check the online forum or private Facebook group for more information.

A meeting may include:
  • Meet and greet
