SEE WHAT WE OFFER
In support of our goals, we offer the following benefits to our members.
Our members meet regularly to share their work, and provide critique. Group sessions like these provide a pivotal tool for writers of all skill levels to sharpen their abilities.
Each year we offer a writing conference designed to offer high value information from some of Idaho’s most prominent authors. Our speakers have included best selling author Don Aslett, award winning writer Tammy Godfrey, and Russell Pike.
As part of our yearly conference, we offer a contest with both themed and open theme topics across a variety of genera. This offers a chance for our members to showcase their skills and compete for cash prizes.
The Idaho Writer’s League hosts several chapters across the state. Visit our Chapter List to find a group near you!
