Monthly Meetings

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 Topics range from craft to forensics to marketing and are intended for both published and unpublished authors.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. The cost for the lunch and speaker program is $25 for MWA members; $30 for non-members. Check our Special Events page for meetings held in other locations around the state.
