The Idaho Writers Guild, a community-based literary arts organization, offers networking and educational opportunities as diverse as our members.
The vision of the Idaho Writers Guild is to support and nurture the craft and business of writing in the State of Idaho.
The mission of the Idaho Writers Guild is to support writers through teaching craft, the business of publishing, the development of a community of peers, promoting resources for Idaho writers, and raising awareness of writing talent.
To fulfill our vision and mission, we host public programs and projects, including author readings, workshops, an annual writing contest, and a yearly conference.
Anyone is eligible for membership that entitles you to discounts on IWG workshops and events and other member-only benefits.
Because of the support of Guild members, board members, and partnerships in the community, we are able to provide a wide variety of discounted and free opportunities. Without you, there would be no Idaho Writers Guild.
