Welcome to SAWG: The Official San Antonio Writers' Guild Website
Monthly meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month. Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, April 7, 2016, at Bethany Congregational Church, 500 Pilgrim Drive, San Antonio, Texas 78213. All are welcome.
This month's meeting will take the form of our annual Poetry and Potluck Event, an open mic event where members and guests will showcase their work. We will read, eat and repeat until we run out of poetry!
If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail containing your name, your contact number, the title of the poem you wish to read, and/or the potluck dish you will be bringing to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2016.
The meeting is free to attend, and all members and guests are welcome!
The Wednesday workshops are held at various locations and times, including Barnes & Noble, Fuddruckers, La Taza, and La Madeleine. Please check our Facebook page for details.
Wednesday, March 23, 2016: La Taza in the Brook Hollow Shopping Center, San Antonio, from 6:30 pm to 9:00 p.m. We will meet around 6:30 p.m. to order coffee/snacks and chat, and will begin reading at 7:00 p.m.
If you have never attended one of these sessions, come and observe the first time and ask that your name be added to the list of those wishing to be read.
Saturday critique sessions are moving!
Come at 1:00 if you wish to have lunch. The critique session starts at 2:30. Feel free to join us. Please do not bring outside food or drink into the restaurant.
Our write-ins for 2016 are listed below. The doors will open between 8:00 am and 8:30 am for registration. The cost is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers. We suggest that you bring a snack to share, such as fruit, pastries, vegetables, etc. Certain members usually bring breakfast tacos. The event usually breaks up around 1:00 pm. (The November write-in goes a little longer in honor of National Novel Writing Month. SAWG will provide pizza for lunch at that event only.) The write-ins take place at our usual meeting place, Bethany Congregational Church at 500 Pilgrim in San Antonio.
