member of the month

david pearceDavid Pearce has been head of the Manatee Writers Group for the past three years. In that time, he has redesigned and expanded the group's newsletter so that it not only covers what's happening in Manatee county, but all the counties along the Southwest Gulf Coast.

He freely gives of his time to encourage and welcome new members into the writing group and to join FWA. He is a fount of information for new writers and experienced writers.

At the start of the pandemic, he created an online writers network so that the Manatee group can meet virtually and share their work four times a month. In short, Dave is the epitome of a writer helping writers! 

The Member of the Month is nominated by fellow members and selected for their dedication in helping other writers. Nominate a member here.
