A note about our meetings:

In even numbered months (February, April, etc.) we meet on Saturday morning from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (Business meeting from 10:00-11:00 a.m. followed by a presentation related to some aspect of writing from 11:00-1:00.)

In odd numbered months (January, March, etc.) we meet on Wednesday evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m. On Wednesdays we typically do not hold a formal business meeting but Board members are on hand to discuss upcoming plans.

We are planning to return our Saturday meetings to a branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library system, as long as the COVID situation allows. After the meeting, all attendees who are comfortable with dining out and have the time can go to lunch at a local restaurant. In the event the library must close due to a COVID outbreak, our Saturday meetings will be on Zoom. We will announce any change to meeting format or location on our membership loop and on our website. Our Wednesday evening meetings will continue via Zoom for the foreseeable future.

Visitors may attend two meetings (excluding members-only events) as our guest before deciding whether to join GLFW.

If you wish to attend one of our meetings, please drop by an in-person meeting or email us at greatlakesfiction@gmail.com for more information. 

Our 2022 speaker calendar is full, but we are always on the lookout for great content. If you’re interested in speaking at one of our meetings or at our annual conference, please email us at greatlakesfiction@gmail.com.
