About Us

The San Antonio Writers’ Guild is a group of writers who meet regularly. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has helped writers develop their craft for over 25 years.

Our purpose is to share experiences & information, and help each other grow in our craft. We welcome writers of all genres & levels of experience.

Becoming a SAWG member allows you to have your writing critiqued during our weekly critique meetings, reduced rates to enter our annual writing contest, and member rates on special events.

Please check back regularly for updated infromation & news. Our events are also posted on SAWG's Facebook page and on Meetup.

Ongoing events include:

No SAWG Monthly Meeting will be held on June 1. Our June meeting is canceled. San Antonio Writers’ Guild President Ken Bennight has passed away. We extend condolences to Ken’s wife Susan and their family as they make final arrangements. Further information will be forthcoming.
