Starting Low Country Non-Fiction Writers

Since moving to Bluffton, South Carolina a few months ago, I researched and visited a number of writers groups in the area, including the Island Writers’ Network (IWN) of Hilton Head Island and South Carolina Writers Association (SCWA). Attended a few their meetings and met a small number of non-fiction writers like myself.

Most writers I’ve met in the lowcountry are fiction writers. This is not uncommon especially in the land Pat Conroy made famous among other authors.

A few other [unnamed] writers groups were more interested in upselling their membership dues instead of forming a local chapter to provide support and value to writers.

So I saw a gap in the market beyond myself where other non-fiction writers were underrepresented and underserved. After speaking with another local non-fiction writer named Roy Austin, we decided to start the Low Country Non-Fiction Writers (LCNFW) to meet monthly at the Beaufort County library which also supports and promotes our meetings to their own patrons.

All experience levels welcome. You don’t have to be published yet to join. We will have some networking among writers and share resources.

Our first meeting is scheduled on Tuesday January 16, 2018 from 6 pm to 7 pm at the Bluffton Community Library in Bluffton, SC. All are welcome and the meetings are free of charge.

We will meet monthly and future meetings will be announced shortly.
