We are a not-for-profit provincial cultural organization representing writers in all disciplines and levels of achievement in their craft. The SWG provides a community in Saskatchewan where writers and writing can thrive and be celebrated.
Since 1969 the SWG has been the place for writers to come together in Saskatchewan to write and support each other. Best-selling authors, poet laureates, international award winners and writers of all genres are part of the community you will be joining. We strive for diversity and equity in our programs. When you join the SWG you will be welcome and always have a home for your voice.
Whether you are just starting out or have been writing for years, the SWG has workshops and resources, on the craft and business of writing, to meet your needs. We seek out the best speakers, programs and resources to help you. We often hire our members, providing them with opportunities to advance their career. Everything you need to take your writing to the next level is here.
We love to acknowledge our members. It is a source of pride when one of our members wins an award or publishes their first, or fifty-first book. We source competitions, calls for submissions, prizes and opportunities so that you can focus on writing and submitting. All we ask is that you let us know about your accomplishments so we can brag about you to the rest of our members.
