Helping writers interact with other writers, improve their craft, and realize their goals.
WHO WE ARE
WINSTON-SALEM'S WRITING COMMUNITY
Winston-Salem Writers is a group of writers who write fiction, non-fiction, plays and poetry, and who care about the art and craft of writing.
We offer programs, workshops, critique groups, open mic nights, web-based writing, contests and writers’ nights out, as well as a weekly newsletter.
We are a non-profit group, and a member of the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. We were founded in 2005 and now have well over 160 members.
We welcome writers and poets at any stage of their art – from beginner to published author – and we welcome non-members to our meetings, contests and newsletter.
