The AWJ asks:

Which Best Describes You?

I am an established writer who wants to network with other professionals.
I have always dreamed of being an author, but I haven't navigated the rough seas to publication.
I write for my own pleasure.
Regardless of your ambitions and goals, you will find like-minded writers and stimulating fellowship in The Atlanta Writers Club. We invite you to be our guest at our next meeting.
The Atlanta Writers Club celebrated its 100th anniversary in April of 2014. Our membership is a diverse group of all writing levels, from talented novices to published professionals. We welcome guests and new members anytime!

Come celebrate the craft of writing with us. You'll make new friends and will learn something new about the creative process. You will enhance your knowledge of the publishing business, stimulate your imagination, and enjoy challenging opportunities through our writing contests and outreach seminars. And, you'll have fun! Please join us. .
