Monthly In-Person

What: Free meetings, varying topics, open to all members & non-members

When: Third Saturday of the Month, 10 am – noon, + optional lunch

Where: Deutsch-Amerikanisches Zentrum (DAZ) Stuttgart, 

Last year, we brought back in person monthly meetings. Over 30 attendees joined the inspiring, motivating and fun workshop sessions one Wednesday a month (from January to July). There were different topics for all levels of authors and illustrators. We had many requests for a weekend meeting time, and we listened! With the continuing support of the DAZ James-F.-Byrnes-Institut e.V. Stuttgart our monthly meetings have moved from Wednesday to Saturday and will continue into 2024.

Please mark your calendars, the enthusiasm at these meetings has been amazing! Register Today!
