A note about our meetings:

Our meetings are primarily held on the second Saturday of each month. We typically 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/or on Zoom. 

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, 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.
