Welcome to Savannah Authors

Who we are and what we do.

Fountain in Forsyth Park

Savannah Authors was founded in 2011 by Christopher Scott (author of thirteen fiction and nonfiction books) and Alice Vantrease (author of two books ). The membership has slowly grown to about thirty. Savannah Authors encourages first-class prose writing, fiction or nonfiction, using discussion, constructive criticism, instruction, and examples. We meet twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Meetings generally consist of one or more readings, a prompt or an exercise, and perhaps a review of basic skills, with plenty of time to review the events that affect all of us. Meetings are generally either in the heart of Savannah, or midtown, at Victory Drive.

Membership is open to everybody with a passion for writing. We welcome unpublished authors, new writers, and people who just want to know more about our craft. We limit ourselves to prose, both fiction and non-fiction, and presentations for this year have been split nearly evenly between the two.
