West Virginia Writers, Inc.Now celebrating our 42nd anniversary year, West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the  largest all-volunteer, writers' resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia.

We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors.  Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state's writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.

WV Writers sponsors both an annual writers conference and an annual writing competition.


  • The West Virginia Writers 2019 Annual Writing Contests will continue to accept late entries through March 31, 2019.  You can find details on how to do so at our contest page.  
  • The workshop descriptions and presenter bios for the 2019 Summer Conference have now been posted to our Conference Page, along with the conference registration form and lodging and meals form for Cedar Lakes.
