Welcome to Socialpolitan Fiction Writing Craft - Where Writers Meet and Hone Their Craft

 

The SFWC is a not-for-profit writers support group, organized to provide educational, networking, and marketing support for individuals interested in learning the craft and business of fiction writing.

 

I believe fiction writing is a Craft.

In the hands of a writer who has mastered the Craft, it can become more than that. It can become Art.

But the bedrock is Craft. There are fundamental techniques to be studied, unfamiliar tools to be mastered, tricks of the trade to be learned. And it all takes time. Are you a fiction writer that's yet to be published? Maybe you're published but still need information about writing. Not sure how to format that manuscript or query letter? How about that synopsis? This community will showcase some of the best information for fiction writers from all over the net.

You have your inspiration, the seed of a story germinating in your mind. You are creating a new world from your imagination. You plan. You write. You realize that you know nothing about an important aspect of your character's life. You could write around that gap in your knowledge and hope you don't make any glaring errors, or you can do some research and fill that gap.

Discover the industry secrets and practical advice you need to become a successful fiction novelist. Find out how to get published and the easiest ways to break into writing. Creative fiction writing tips, articles, writing elements and much more. All genres welcome!

We welcome new members, both novice writers and professionals, as well as anyone in the publishing industry with a vested interest in nurturing the art of fiction writing.
