All writers who are residents or former residents of Alberta are welcome to join the Writers’ Guild of Alberta. Our members include professional writers, aspiring professionals, and hobbyists. We aim to provide support for writers of all forms and genres.
Membership offers access to a number of valuable programs, the chance to connect with Alberta’s dynamic literary community, and the opportunity to contribute to the efforts of an important arts advocacy organization. Membership benefits include:
A one-year subscription to WestWord, our bi-monthly magazine containing articles of interest to writers and listings of markets, contests, awards, and events. (Canadian residents are eligible to receive either a hard-copy or electronic version; international residents will receive the magazine electronically.)
