Welcome to Northwest Women
NWWW, a collective of 100 writers
in the North Puget Sound Region, is dedicated to providing Social,
Educational, and Promotional opportunities for our members. Striving
to help our writers thrive, we offer pertinent professional
information, interpersonal activities, workshops, weekly
updates of local literary events, a bi-monthly newsletter, plus Poetry
and Critique Groups.
Put simply, we are an organization
supporting writers, encouraging friendships among our peers.
all levels of the
craft, our members range from published authors with numerous
publications and books, to those just beginning their writing
journey. Originally geared to the fairer sex, we now have added a
handful of brave men. Membership is open to all To
encourage camaraderie and
networking, social activities range from formal no-host luncheons to
relaxed pot lucks. Intimate coffee klatches geared to peers with
similar interests also are provided.
Time is frequently left
unstructured, enabling writers to ask questions, network, and
bond. Most find these gatherings with their peers invigorating. From
these events, many have made wonderful friendships, key in supporting a
writer's sometimes solitary lifestyle.
Professionally, our bi-monthly
includes industry articles and trends, information regarding upcoming
events, opportunities for self-promotion, articles and poetry by
our writers, plus much more. Additionally, weekly updates
notify members of local writing workshops, classes,
conferences and literary events. There are no fees for these services.
This year we
are providing numerous
workshops with both locally and regionally known presenters. Please
see our events page for specific classes. Our master project
will culminate in publishing our first NWWW book, a themed anthology
with contributions from our many talented writers.
NWWW sounds like something
you might enjoy, please contact us. We'll put you on our roster, send
you our next update and newsletter, and plug you into the spirited
North Sound writing community, a talented and friendly group of writers.
Wishing you the best in your
Betsy Diedrick, NWWW Coordinator
