Columbia Writers is a close-knit group of dedicated writers and authors from all over Maryland. We take pride in each others' work and our shared goal is to encourage the work into its best possible version. While many of our members focus on YA, kidlit, and children's genres, we welcome all fiction genres (we do not cover non-fiction or poetry). We meet regularly to exchange critiques of our writing, collaborate on writing projects, and host workshops or author meets. As a group, we've completed one anthology and are planning on a second.
New members are welcome to apply provided they are able to regularly participate; click on 'join us' to complete the application questions. Please answer all 5 questions fully so we can determine if CW is a good fit for you. A photograph of yourself (i.e. headshot) is requested so we can look for you at your first meet.
