Join Us

SIWA takes writing seriously. Because of this we ask all those interested to submit writing for us to consider.

We do not expect you to be the next Eleanor Catton, but we want to see that you are as serious about writing as we are. We want you to get as much out of this group as we all do!

We encourage those who are interested in joining to come along to a meeting first.

To join, please read our guidelines, SIWA Entry Guidelines for Applicants,  fill out our Membership Application and send to along with three excerpts from your writing (at least a page each)


The yearly subscription for SIWA is $45. This helps us pay for our meeting room, the judges for our competitions, and any workshops or other events we run during the year.
