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Monthly meetings and workshops provide a comfortable forum where published and unpublished writers share knowledge about the ever-changing publishing industry.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.
