Pine Island Writers meet at St. John’s Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall in St. James City, every Monday evening at 7:00.

Put a voice to your work by reading your poem or a section of your current work. You may choose to write on the week’s topic or you may just choose to listen. We limit the length of a reading to 500 words, depending on the number of participants.

The group facilitator keeps us on topic and ensures that everyone has a chance to share their work in a timely manner.


From off island, follow Pine Island Road to the 4-way stop at Pine Island Center. Turn left (south) onto Stringfellow Road. The church is located approximately 2.8 miles on the right.


Pine Island Writers is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Dues are $24.00 a year, renewable in January, and pro-rated during the year. In order to use the PayPal payment option, you will have to pay the full amount as they cannot pro-rate the cost. The difference can be used as a charitable donation to our organization, which would be greatly appreciated.

We request that you please join at your second visit. Your dues are used for seminars, membership in the Pine Island Chamber of Commerce, meeting space rental, publication seed money, printing costs, and island charities. Click on “Pay Now” to send in your member dues.
