Established in 1977, West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the  largest nonprofit, all-volunteer, writers' resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia. 

We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of all human endeavors.  Our aim is to expand and develop creative writing and professional opportunities for writers and to connect the state's writers with others in the literary community and the public at large.

WV Writers sponsors both an annual writers conference and an annual writing competition. 

The winners of the WV Writers Annual Writing Contest were announced during the awards banquet at the 2014 Summer Conference on June 14.  You can see them HERE
