As a literary resource that desires to uplift marginalized voices, we are deeply saddened by actions that silence or dismiss Black pain and suffering. We will be better listeners. We will be better advocates. Georgia Writers Association believes Black writers must be heard in all communities, so to start, we will be donating a portion of each membership until further notice to the Hurston/Wright Foundation, an arts nonprofit organization whose programming includes workshops and readings for Black writers as well as awards for college writers, and the annual Legacy Awards for the best in Black literature.
Georgia Writers Association Board of Directors
Georgia Writers Association is here as a resource for writers at every stage of writing. Our mission is to connect creatives across the state of Georgia and beyond, to uplift marginalized voices, facilitate accessibility within the community, and connect writers so that they can learn from each other.
Whether you’re a novice writer who wants to learn more about craft or you’re an established, award-winning writer, we have resources and opportunities available so that you can both learn from and give back to your creative community. We want to facilitate a world in which every person has a say in their narrative–how it’s written, perceived, and who hears it. In order to help you find your voice and audience, we offer our members complimentary monthly workshops and events, discounted registration for our annual Red Clay Writers Conference, online genre-specific critique groups, a subscription to Poets & Writers, discounts on writing software, and savings on our online courses on craft, publishing, and career management.
