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.

8th Annual Florida Writers Foundation Celebrity Workshop proudly presents John Gilstrap

John Gilstrap, New York Times Bestselling Author of High Treason, End Game and our Person of Renown for Collection #8, “Hide and Seek”

“Weaving suspense into a story can be complicated. We’ll discuss how to leave bread crumbs for readers, and focus on the ‘hide and seek’ aspect of writing.
For everyone who has something . . . or someone to hide, there’s always someone else out there who wants to find it. But how do they find what they’re looking for? And how does your reader find these clues on their own?
We’ll cover all these questions, and more.”
