The Wyowriter [Collection]
Wyoming Writers, Inc. (WW, Inc.) began in 1974 following a writing workshop, as a way to continue the conversation and create a community for writers in our wide-open, sparsely populated state. An annual conference quickly became a cornerstone of the group, a foundation from which isolated writers could build relationships to further their writing endeavors. The yearly meeting is augmented by our newsletter, website, and members-only e-list. Check out the Wyoming Writers, Inc. Website for more information.
