Today is Pinellas Writers’ (also known as PINAWOR) 30th anniversary. For three decades we’ve been encouraging and helping writers of all skill levels and in all genres. Click on Club History to the left to learn about our past.

Warning: Change of Venue for May 6 and 20, 2017

Our normal facility, the Largo Southwest Recreation Center, has large meetings planned for May 6, 2017 and May 20, 2017, which will make parking a serious challenge. As a result, Largo is letting us meet at our old space in the Largo Community Center, at 400 Alt. Keene Rd. This center is off of East Bay a block east of Keene, and is across from the Regal Palms facilities.

30th Anniversary of Pinellas Writers.

On Saturday April 22, 2017, we’ll celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Pinellas Writers. After the morning break, we’ll enjoy cake, hear a very brief description of the organization’s history, and have the opportunity to purchase commemorative t-shirts. Then we’ll resume our regular schedule of reading aloud and having our work critiqued. You don’t want to miss this special event!

So Long To Our Snowbirds.

Here’s a sad farewell to our snow-bird members, and wishes for your safe travel. The summer and early fall won’t be the same without you. See all of you come early winter.

With the snow birds gone, members won’t have to get there quite so early to get a reading spot, but we’ll sure miss hearing a lot of good writing!

Critique cards

We added the availability of members giving readers written critiques so long as the critiquer signs them. We’re hoping that this will increase the volume of input our readers receive.
