The Fourth Tuesday Each Month
In-person and virtual.
What takes place at an ACFW North Georgia meeting? A lot! Every monthly meeting contains the following segments:
- Introductions. We’ll learn a little about each other and the genre we each write.
- 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.
- 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 our the schedule below for a list of upcoming speakers and topics.
