October and November Meetings

The blog is up and running!

We apologize for the long delay in blog posts and updates. The St. Pete FWA group continues to meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the St. Pete Library Main Branch at 6pm. All are welcome!

At the October meeting, Samantha from Gone Global Media presented the many aspects of social media that writers have the privilege, or the burden, of utilizing. From Twitter to Facebook to Pinterest, she provided insight and methods for writers who may want to use these tools for promotion, marketing, or simply for writing purposes.

At the November meeting, Rob McCabe presented on screenwriting and playwriting. His informative session provided tools for writers who are looking to write a play or script, and/or adapt a novel or short story to a screenplay.

The next meeting is December 11th. Stay tuned for more information.
