About WWA

Founded in 1948, the Wisconsin Writers Association is a creative community dedicated to the support of writers and authors. WWA sponsors and hosts year-round workshops and events throughout Wisconsin, offering discounts and exclusive resources. We aim to share experiences and knowledge while encouraging our members in their pursuit of this most noble art. Develop your craft. Discover resources. Expand your network. Build your audience.

Members are welcome to:

  • Submit a personal bio on the Profiles of Members page about your experience as a writer, poet, speaker, editor, blogger, publisher, or any talent and expertise you want to share with others.
  • Join a WWA member writing group near you. See the list on the Member Writing Groups page. If you start a new member writing group, please email Operations Director, Julia Nusbaum at so that your group can be added to the list.
  • Enjoy the WWA experience in-person during workshops and events held across the state— share work, seek advice and network, learn from award-winning speakers, connect with writers in all genres… shop the author marketplace, and have fun.
  • Enter fiction, nonfiction or poetry in our Jade Ring writing contest and learn about other contests. 

We are pleased to encourage and help our members find answers to their questions about WWA
