About Us

The Palm Beach Writers Group (PBWG) is an organization that supports writers, authors, dramatists, poets, editors, publishers, and agents in Palm Beach County, Florida. Membership is open to the public and we welcome new members.

In furtherance of our support mission, the Palm Beach Writers Group has monthly in-season luncheon meetings, engages experts who speak on subjects that relate to the mutual professional interests of our members, sponsors author book signing events, holds social events, and encourages its members to improve their writing and related skills through the mutual exchange of ideas and knowledge.


The Palm Beach Writers Group was created to support and encourage local writers who are published or have works in progress.

At monthly meetings, we share our expertise about writing and our experiences with publishing and marketing. We learn from each other as well as from our exceptional speakers. Meetings are held on the 3rd Friday of the month - October through April. Author book signing events are held June, July and August. Our books are carried at the Classic Bookshop, 310 S. County Road, Palm Beach, FL 33480
