At our monthly meetings, members
have the opportunity to meet authors, agents, editors and publishers and to acquire current techniques and information for
the crafting and marketing of their work. The Club offers professional networking, mentoring and a variety of educational
programs to its members. We facilitate the exchange of ideas among authors and provide inspiration through the camaraderie
of fellow writers.
