NCWA was founded on April 24, 1990, as a board-governed, nonprofit, support organization for Christian writers.
At NCWA our mission is three-fold:
- Develop our writing skills. Fiction, nonfiction, magazine articles, devotionals, Web sites ... whatever we write we want to do it with excellence.
- Teach others. We offer critique, encouragement, networking, and training for writers of all experience levels.
- Encourage each other to love God more deeply and know Him more fully. We strive to please Him with our prose, but our measure of success in the end is if we've made God more famous through our prose. We believe the story of life is not about us, but about Him.
Our members come from all over the Puget Sound area and range in age from teens to octogenarians.
Our membership includes authors who have sold millions of books and beginners sticking their proverbial toe in the writing ocean for the first time. We're homemakers, retirees, full-time writers, teens, and moonlighting writers with full-time careers.
Whether you're a veteran or are exploring the arena of writing for the first time, you'll fit right in.
In September, and sometimes January, we meet on the second Monday due to holidays. We take July and August off.
