Welcome to SAWG: The Official San Antonio Writers' Guild Website

The San Antonio Writers' Guild is an organization for writers of all genres and all levels of experience. Our purpose is to share information with our fellow writers and help each other grow in our craft. Through contests, critiques, newsletters, our website, and our Facebook page, we seek to provide assistance and encouragement to writers of all skill levels. Come to a meeting for friendly, invaluable fellowship.

Critique Sessions

We also hold critique sessions most Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. You may bring any genre. We have a wide range of interests. We discuss plot, pacing, dialogue, etc. We do not point out grammatical errors or punctuation problems, but we do note those on the pages presented for critique.

The Wednesday workshops are held at various locations and times, including Barnes & Noble, Fuddruckers, The Lion and The Rose, La Taza, and La Madeleine. Please check our Facebook page for details.

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.

*Please note that anyone can attend these sessions, but you must be a paid-up member of SAWG to have your work read.

Saturday critiques are held from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. at Geeks Cafe, 5460 Babcock Road.

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.
