Florida Chapter of MWA monthly meetings offer members the chance to socialize, learn about their craft, get inspired, and exchange industry news. We meet on the third Saturday of each month. At our lunch meetings, we offer entertaining, educational programs by accomplished speakers. Topics range from craft to forensics to marketing and are intended for both published and unpublished authors. We welcome other professionals in the fields of writing and publishing, plus those who simply appreciate reading a good mystery novel.
Until further notice, meetings will be virtual only and you will not have the option of in-person attendance. A link and password to join the meeting will be sent to members the week of the meeting. There will be no charge to attend.
Check our Special Events page for meetings held in other locations around the state.
