Who We Are
Welcome to The Florida Writers Foundation Website. We have come together to share our passion for literature by helping promote literacy. We bring a variety of talents, interests and skills while sharing a commitment to help. We are Florida Writers Foundation, Inc. (FWF), a 501[c]3 non-profit corporation formed to promote literacy, as well as enhancing the writing skills of children, youth, and adults. Our volunteers and our partners have already started to make a difference by visiting elementary schools for reading days, sponsoring poetry contests, donating books to under-privileged schools, and contributing funds to middle school writing contests.
What we're doing - Upcoming Events
Mega-bestselling author Mary Burton will be the celebrity author for the 5th Annual Florida Writers Foundation Celebrity Workshop Thursday, October 17, 2013. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., the workshop runs 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (lunch included), and the Conference Bookstore opens 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. for Mary’s sales only (she will also hold a book signing).
In her workshop, Writing your Book…The First Step, Mary Burton reveals her real-world secrets to publishing success. Mary has been dubbed the “Queen of Modern-Day Romantic Suspense,” but her winning approach applies to writing in all genres. Do you write thrillers? Mysteries? Science fiction? Whatever! Good writing is good writing, and this workshop is intended to help you find your voice and achieve your publishing goals.
Plus, Mary will join us for the 12th Annual Florida Writers Conference sponsored by the Florida Writers Association. Both events will be held at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary.
FWF's pre-conference seminar/workshop is well worth spending one more day with us, especially with Mary Burton as our presenter. Mary Burton created a Write on! video she calls Writing One Draft at a Time. She's also shared her thoughts with us in an article she wrote for The Florida Writer. Please come to the 12th annual conference in 2013 to meet Mary. More information about the superstar suspense author is at MaryBurton.com.
This workshop will be filling up fast, so be sure to register early.
