What to expect

What takes place at an ACFW North Georgia meeting? Lots.

Every monthly meeting contains the following segments:

  • Introductions (Don’t worry about who you don’t know – we wear nametags!)
  • Good news (Everything from getting a rejection to landing a contract to simply getting some writing done)
  • Writing-related Devotion
  • Industry News (Stay up on the latest happenings, contests, and conference news)
  • Tech Tip (Computers, social media, Scrivener… there’s so many things that can help with your writing and we’ll help you use them.)
  • Writing Tip (You’ll always go home with SOMETHING that can make your writing better.)

Each month will also bring in a speaker or panel of some kind to guide us in our learning. Check out the Schedule below for a list of upcoming speakers and topics. To stay up to date on special public events and receive meeting reminders the day of each meeting, please join our public interest newsletter.
