Amelia Island Writers

The program for November is a perennial favorite of aspiring and established writers. You're invited to write about a holiday gathering. What did you see and do? What did it look like? How did you feel? What colors come to mind? What are the smells, tastes and sounds? You can write the story from your own perspective or someone else's.


As always, sharing your story with others is optional. If you would like to share, please limit your story to 750 words or less to allow sufficient time for everyone. There is enough space upstairs for attendees to be safely distanced, yet still enjoy the program.


Please RSVP by 3 pm Monday. Amelia Island Writers is a chapter of the Florida Writers Association; all are welcome to attend monthly meetings. For more information, visit or contact Marla McDaniel at
