Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a supportive and encouraging community where writers can inspire one another to become successful authors. NCW is comprised of novelists, journalists, memoirists, poets, screenwriters, bloggers, children's book writers, and many more. We embrace diversity regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or race as we believe our individual backgrounds, perspectives, and passions help us create the stories we tell.  We invite you to become a member of our community as you pursue your personal literary goals. 

- Amy Rivers, NCW Director

Annual Membership
