History of Northern Colorado Writers
Northern Colorado Writers is the brainchild of Fort Collins freelance writer and book author Kerrie Flanagan. It began in 2006. Kerrie discovered a strong writing community in Northern Colorado, but there wasn't anything bringing these writers together. With the help of best-selling children's author Debbie Dadey, the first Northern Colorado Writers Conference (NCWC) was held in March of 2006 at the Armstrong Hotel in downtown Fort Collins with LeAnn Thieman as the keynote speaker.

Through newsletters, meetings, retreats, classes, and the annual conference, NCW helps provide members with the tools, resources, support, and encouragement for a successful writing life.
Northern Colorado Writers is now under the direction of April Moore, author and longtime member of NCW, who plans to continue building upon the solid foundation Kerrie has built for writers of all levels and genres.
