We’re the Idaho Writers Guild — offering professional networking and educational opportunities as diverse as the writers who join it. In addition to serving as a networking resource for writers wishing to become actively involved in the writing community, the IWG plans and develops programs to aid writers. Our membership reflects all genres and media.
We’re a community-based literary arts organization promoting education in the community by hosting public programs and projects, including author readings, workshops on a broad spectrum of topics, writing contests, and conferences of interest to writers and readers of all genres.
Writers of all genres are eligible for membership. Members receive discounts to IWG workshops and events, and an online newsletter. Roster members, additionally, are sent requests that IWG occasionally receives for paid work and speaking engagements.
