Meetings

Firey Orange AudienceSWW meetings are a great place for writers to gather, network, and learn. Members are encouraged to share their successes and announcements. And the speakers are awesome!

Regular Meetings are held on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 am to noon and the third Tuesday from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm (no Tuesday meeting in December) at the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living located on the northwest corner of Louisiana and Claremont—2 blocks north of Menaul—at 2801 Louisiana Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110.

Classes

Fiery Orange Hands IconSouthWest Writer’s classes help writers advance their skills and marketability during the course of several sessions. The classes are open to the public. Class fees are kept low to encourage participation. Experienced instructors guide participants through lecture, example and, often, critique to increase the quality of their writing. Classes can include assignments to be completed outside of that class period. For a list of our current offerings, go to our Classes page.

Workshops

Any work required of the students is done during that session. The workshops are open to the public and fees are kept low to encourage participation. Go to our Workshops page for a list of current offerings.
