A note about our meetings:

Our meetings are primarily held on the first Saturday of each month. We have a business meeting from 10:00-11:00 AM followed by a presentation related to some aspect of writing from 11:00-1:00. All times listed are Eastern time. Meetings will usually be held in person at a branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, and when technology cooperates, via Zoom as well. After the meeting, all attendees who wish to do so go to lunch together at a local restaurant. In the event the library must close due to inclement weather or a COVID outbreak, our meetings will be on Zoom. We will announce any change to meeting format or location on our private membership forum and on our website as soon as we become aware of it.

Visitors may attend two meetings (excluding members-only events) as our guest before deciding whether to join GLFW. Attendance at the Cleveland Rocks Writers Conference is subject to pre-registration, which will be available 1-2 months prior to the conference by visiting our conference page.

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

We are always on the lookout for interesting programs and workshops. If you’re interested in speaking at one of our meetings or at our annual conference, please email us at greatlakesfiction@gmail.com.
