Welcome to the Official Home of the Chicago Writers Association

Think . Write . Inspire

The Chicago Writers Association is a creative community of Chicagoland writers established in 2003 and federally registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2008. We span many genres, styles and levels of experience. Our purpose is to share information, experiences, and encouragement with those of us for whom written expression is an integral part of life.
