Welcome to the Great Lakes Fiction Writers!

Are you a writer searching for community and connection with others of shared interests? Look no further – the Great Lakes Fiction Writers community is calling your name! We’d like to extend a warm invitation to all writers, whether you’re a seasoned author or just dipping your toes into the world of romance.

Based on the shores of Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio, Great Lakes Fiction Writers (GLFW) is a diverse community where traditionally published and indie authors, editors, educators, librarians, and small press entrepreneurs come together to celebrate the art of romance writing. We believe in the power of community, and we welcome writers from all walks of life to join us.

What sets us apart?

Monthly meetings filled with engaging workshops and knowledgeable presenters, designed to elevate your craft and spark your creativity. Whether you’re exploring the nuances of character development, diving into the intricacies of plot structure, or navigating the ever-changing landscape of the publishing industry, our meetings are where you can get your questions answered..

But that’s not all – GLFW offers a supportive critique group where you can share your work with fellow members, receive constructive feedback, and polish your manuscript until it gleams. We understand the importance of refining your writing skills, and we’re here to provide an environment for your growth.

And if that’s not enough, we hold three special events each year: a Fall Writer’s Conference, and the member’s only Writers Retreat, and Holiday Party.

Whether you’re penning your first love story or adding another bestseller to your catalog, the Great Lakes Fiction Writers community is the place to be. Join us today!
