The next Southwest Florida meeting of the Florida MWA will be September 9, 2017. Save the date.

All meetings start at 1pm. We meet in room 108 of the L-building at Florida SouthWestern State College – adjacent to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. I will put up signs inside. Check the Lee Campus map here for more details <http://www.fsw.edu/about/maps>

Parking: You are allowed to park in Lot 7 next to the L-building (usually reserved for faculty) on Saturday, even if there is an event going on at BB Mann.

You do not have to be an MWA member to attend this meeting – although MWA membership materials will be available — invite your fiction writing friends.

We will meet for lunch before each meeting at 11:30 at Jason’s Deli – 13550 Reflection Parkway, Fort Myers. It’s off Cypress Lake Drive near the FSW campus.
