Meetings & Events


SWW meetings are full of fun! Members are encouraged to share their successes and announcements. 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.

SouthWest 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.


During our 2-hour Saturday workshops (after the regular meeting), experienced instructors guide participants through lecture and example to increase their marketability and the quality of their writing. 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.


Writer’s conferences are normally held twice a year. Each one brings well-known experts in a specific genre as well as critical information relevant to all fields of writing.

For 2019, a joint conference is scheduled with SWW and Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) from Thursday, September 12 through Sunday, September 15, 2019.
