News and Community

Welcome to the News and Community pages.

For more than twenty years, SiWC has been bringing writers together. A strong, loyal community, we teach and learn, drive and inspire, and help and support each other not just on conference weekend, but all year long. Enter our writing contest! Submit a deserving writer for one of our awards! Young writer? Apply for a scholarship to attend!

Keep motivated by staying connected with other SiWC writers and presenters whenever you want. We are as close as your computer screen.
