Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale Writers group.

Are you thinking about writing a book? Have you written your book and are unsure about what to do next? Are you a published author looking to connect with other writers?

This is THE PLACE!

Meet other local writers. All writers (including beginners), editors, publishers and bookstore owners are welcome!

Ruth Richard is the organizer of this group. Jason Halle started it but for personal reasons has had to step down as organizer. We want to provide a safe place to learn and share with other writers. Our goal for this group is to have meetings that will serve the members. Please email Ruth Richard at lastunicorn99@yahoo.com with your needs and  meetings can be planned around them. If you are having a problem with something or need more information on a certain topic, the chances are other members have the same needs.

Please join us.

If you are an expert about book-writing or marketing and would like to speak at an event, please contact the organizer, Ruth Richard. We would love to have you share your expertise with our group and can plan a meeting around your schedule.
