Professional Series meetings will take place at Seattle Pacific University on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with the exception of our October Kick-off Meeting, which is at the Central Branch of the Seattle Public Library (1000 4th Ave, Seattle) so that our members can participate in the Washington State Book Award festivities that weekend.

This year, we’ve added early morning affinity group socials, with coffee, tea, and breakfast treats, from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Each Professional Series meeting will host a different affinity group social. Affinity groups include: All Voices Inclusivity, LGBTQ+, Self-Publishing, New Members, Illustrators, Nonfiction, and more. Watch our calendar for updates about affinity group social dates!
