Speaker Programs & Author Events

Speakers are the highlight of our monthly meetings. We showcase industry leaders: authors, editors, publishers, and teachers who may inform writers about topics related to the art and craft of writing, the publishing industry, and the business of writing. Author events help members launch their published work. We recognize newly published CWC members with author events at our speaker programs. Contact us if you are a member and have just published something you want to share with fellow club members.
