Let's Write Together

IWWG Mission

IWWG is a network for the personal and professional empowerment of women through writing. Our mission is to encourage women to tell their stories, provide support and instruction as they seek to improve their craft, open avenues for them to bring their writing into the world, and build their confidence.

IWWG History

The Guild was founded in 1976. As a women’s writing guild, we are culturally diverse. From the beginning, we’ve represented women from many backgrounds. When the Guild was founded, we wanted to create a place where all women writers feel welcome, inspired, and empowered by skills, resources, and mentoring.

Now, after 45 years of enriching women writers’ lives, we are still growing and changing with the times. We have a strong membership, a quarterly publication, a yearly summer conference, and regional events,

We’ve been listening to women writers around the world. Many of us yearn for writing and publishing resources, friendship, self-expression, professional writing guidance, and development of craft. Many of us yearn for a community, but may not have the means or time to travel to a Guild event in person.

We refuse to let the voices of emboldened women writers go unheard. We have therefore expanded our online workshops and also offer free writes, Open Mics, writing circles and a Global Pen Pal program.

We’re ushering in a movement of mighty, soulful women writers. Together, we’re changing the way women writers’ stories get heard, crafted, and spread around the globe.
