San Miguel de Allende

A New Facebook Writers’ Group In San Miguel

December 11, 2020

San Miguel is such an incredibly creative town. The lack of in-person social gatherings has tempered our spirits a bit, but many are still occupying our time with artistic endeavors.

For writers, the San Miguel Writers’ Conference is still offering amazing keynotes, literary events, and workshops.

Blogs are still being written. Books published and released. ZOOM meetings called to order.

In keeping with the need for outlets, and offer a group where San Miguel authors and writers can find each other and support, encourage, and network. I have started a Facebook Group – Writers Of San Miguel De Allende.

The group, of course, will be what we all join in and make of it, and I encourage any author/writer who lives or has a home base in San Miguel to join. Since I posted the group yesterday afternoon, we have eighteen members and I look forward to welcoming more.

About (as seen on our home page) 

I created this group for anyone in San Miguel who has a story to tell. To offer a networking space, share writing tips, offer encouragement to other San Miguel Writers, and post our goals and successes, and offer support.

All posts should be about writing, publishing, formatting, etc. related. No politics, no religion (unless it is the subject of your writing), no controversial topics, and no inappropriate selling e.g. make-up posts.

Who should be here?

1) You’re positive, interested in connecting with other awesome SMA writers, and will communicate in an uplifting way.

2) You are an Author or Writer in SMA

3) You are a new or established writer interested in the craft and practice of writing and everything connected with that.

Note: Only those who answer the membership questions can join.


For our San Miguel Bloggers, I have a separate Facebook Group – Bloggers of San Miguel de Allende, which is still active. If you live in San Miguel or it is your home base and you have a blog, you are welcome to join. Once again, you will need to answer the membership questions.

    Hi Ria,

    How good to read your’s and Glenn’s blog again. Sorry we’ve been out of touch; even during the enforced “stay in” time of Covid-9 we seem to stay very busy: correspondence with our board for Latin American Relief Fund, Zoom meetings. doing newsletters and then there’s my women’s kayak group, now turned to weekly walking group with changing weather—we wear masks and stay safely distanced—when kayaking not hard to do on a river or lake. The fall here was beautiful—we hadn’t;t realized that for the last 11 years we had missed that, usually being in San Miguel. We do miss San Miguel greatly, especially friends there, like you and Glenn. Let’s do a happy hour on ZOOM. Send me an email with a suggested date and time.

    I may be interested in the FB writing group, though I find FB can be distraction from serious writing. I am 2/3 done with first draft to my new novel—working title “Scream”! Also almost done with my memoir: hope to get both out next year!!

    Let’s talk more! Sher

    P.S. Our house is still on the market. We’ve dropped the price! Please let us know if anyone you know is looking for a wonderful San Miguel house.

      Hi Sher, WOW, you are really chugging along with your books. Looking forward to reading them. I am still working on my first memoir and then right afterward will work on the second. It is a process. I am not rushing it as I have never written memoirs or anything before. I am learning a lot and working within 4 writer’s accountability groups. The new FB Writer’s group is set up for networking and to give encouragement and support. I think everyone can use a bit of that. I think I am doing serious writing. Glenn is still up in California till at least mid-January. We would love to do a three-way ZOOM. Hugs to you both.
