Tell Us Your Story

GCWA has been around quite some time now. We have a very diversified membership and each has different reasons for being a part of our association. Some people have come and gone, and some have stayed. We want to hear your story and why you are with us.

    How skilled of a writer do your members need to be? I enjoy writing and want to start making more time for it, but I don’t have any completed books, only stories and some poems. I would love to get to know other writers and learn more from their experience and passion for writing. Is there room for a beginner like me?

    Good Evening:

    I got your brochure at the Alliance for the Arts. I have published a novel, loosely based on my experiences during 16 months of combat in Vietnam. Would that exclude me from membership? I might be interested in attendance.

    I moved to Fort Myers in November 2015, and have loved it every moment since. I’m looking forward to getting to know other writers and sharing our stories.

    I came for networking with people who need my services. I totally agree with Tim though, absolutely every meeting I have attended, I have gotten valuable information, often on subjects I felt I had no interest in. Now, I am disheartened when I cannot make a meeting.
