Pinellas Writers meets every Saturday morning year round at the Largo Community Center. Meeting starts at 9:30AM, breaks briefly at 10:30AM, and closes at noon. While fiction writers are in the majority, we have some great poets, playwrights, screenwriters, memoirists and bloggers. All writers of all levels are welcome.
Your are welcome to visit up to three times to see if you would like to become a member. Not all writers may find us a good fit, but most do. Annual dues are $50.00, which entitles you to read at the meetings, receive critiques on your work, and critique other writers.
The Community Center is about a quarter mile north of East Bay Drive, at 700 Alternate Keene Road. Don’t confuse this with Keene Road, which is about a mile east. Alternate Keene runs north (only) off East Bay; there’s no traffic light at the turn.
If you’re coming from Clearwater, head south on Missouri or Keene Road. Upon reaching East Bay and Missouri, turn left; at East Bay and Keene, turn right. At Alt Keene, turn north (right). Largo Community Center is on your right, across from Palms of Largo.
If you’re coming from Bay Pines or the beaches, come up Seminole Blvd, turn right at East Bay, and proceed to Alt. Keene which is just past Palms complex. Turn left (north) onto the road.
From St. Pete or Bardmoor and points south, head north on Starkey until you reach East Bay. Turn left. In about a mile, you’ll reach Alt. Keene (before the traffic light). Turn right. The center will be on your right about a quarter mile up, just past the mobile home park.
From Tampa, take the Interstate west to East Bay Drive, westbound. Follow East Bay to Alternate Keene. The last light you’ll go through before you reach Alt. Keene will be Keene/Starkey (the road changes name there). After Keene/Starky, it’s about a mile to Alt. Keene.
