Writing Groups

The North Carolina Writers’ Network connects, promotes, and serves the writers of this state. We provide education in the craft and business of writing, opportunities for recognition and critique of literary work, resources for writers at all stages of development, support for and advocacy of the literary heritage of North Carolina, and a community for those who write. The North Carolina Writers’ Network believes that writing is necessary both for self-expression and a healthy community, that well-written words can connect people across time and distance, and that the deeply satisfying experiences of writing and reading should be available to everyone.

Founded in 1983, Carteret Writers is a 501(c)3 charitable, non-profit organization with three goals: Promote the art of writing; Cultivate camaraderie among writers; and Collaborate with other organizations to foster an understanding and appreciation of writing and writers.

Founded in November 1918, the Virginia Writers Club has ten chapters and three sub-chapters throughout the Commonwealth, and continues its mission to support and stimulate the art, craft, and business of writing, as well as advocate the literary arts in the broader Virginia community. Members range from aspiring and published writers, poets, screenwriters and playwrights, journalists, essayists and other publishing professions. The Virginia Writers Club offers writing contests, an annual writing symposium, and support to literary events held by area chapters.
