Local Chapters

We invite you to visit any of our chapters around the state at the times and locations listed below. However, SCWA By-laws require that after the third visit, you become a SCWA member. See  Join Us for details.

Our sister organization is Charlotte Writers’ Club.  www.charlottewritersclub.org

If you are interested in starting a new chapter in your area, we encourage you to do so. Contact the Chapter Liaison at scwritersassociationliaison@gmail.com  for assistance.
