Founded in 1914, the Atlanta Writers Club (AWC)…

teaches the craft and business of writing, supports the local literary community, and encourages more reading by the public.

Our Membership: AWC serves all who are interested in writing, from well-published authors to those aspiring to write for the first time. Our members include writers of fiction, non-fiction, memoir, essays, blogs, graphic novels, poetry, screenwriting, playwrighting, journalism, and freelance work. READ MORE>>

Upcoming Events: AWC hosts monthly educational meetings and periodic workshops, all of which are free to its members. Come to a meeting for free to decide if we’ll be a good fit for you. We also host the Atlanta Writers Conference twice each year, where our members can receive literary agent and publisher feedback about their work, advance toward agent representation and book deals, and learn even more about writing and the publishing industry.
