Welcome

 

We are a group of writers and editors dedicated to improving our skills and helping others do the same since 1979.  Please join us at our regular meetings on the fourth Monday of each month.  Guests are welcome to attend. A $5 donation is requested.

Guild’s Mission

. . . to promote, support, and encourage the writing art for adults and youth. The anthology is a fund-raising project with all proceeds helping the Guild continue in that effort. As a collaborative partner in the larger San Diego writing community since 1979.

Some of our outreach projects include:

* Speakers Bureau – professionals are available for presentations to groups in San Diego County. Topics include creative and non-fiction writing and marketing published work.
* Manuscript Review – members may submit up to 30 pages of a novel, short fiction or memoir for evaluation/critique by the Guild’s Recommendation Committee. An SDWEG rating is assigned which can be used when contacting agents, editors and publishers.
* Online references and resources for writers on our website: http://sdweg.wordpress.com/links/
*Current calendar of local literary community activities and events.
*Monthly meetings with guest speakers addressing timely topics on writing/publishing.

  1. Last night’s program with Larry Edwards sharing his wealth of experience on how he successfully planned and then executed a marketing strategy for the release of his memoir, Dare I Call It Murder?, was excellent. I spent the entire ride home thinking about the ideas Larry shared and how the Guild can provide support to its members when embarking on a marketing adventure. Thanks very much, Larry!

    • I am interested. After Larry’s presentation last week I thought about providing information on creating a WordPress site for book promotion as a topic for such a support group. I would be willing to put a presentation together for this.

  3. Is anyone planning to take part in National Novel Writing Month (http://nanowrimo.org/)? If so, perhaps we could get an SDWEG group together during November.
