Coastal Authors Network (CAN)  is a writer’s critique group in the Myrtle Beach, SC, area. They meet at various locations on Wednesday afternoon from September through May.

CAN started  in 2012 with a group of people who attended one of the OLLI classes at Coastal Carolina University. They decided to continue meeting for the purpose of critiquing each other’s works in progress. Since that time they’ve added a few and lost a few members.

Since their inception they have published an anthology titled Goin’ Coastal, which includes short stories from the members about their move to the Myrtle Beach area and another one about some event which occurred after their arrival. In additional they have had seven members who have gone on to publish at least one book using Independent Publishing.

Starting April 2019 we will be posting monthly blog entries crafted by our members. This will give you an idea of the varied writing styles within our organization.
