For questions concerning membership, such as available benefits and your online profile, please contact Member Liaison, Laura Mahal, at For all other questions (conference, classes, etc.) please contact April Moore at april@northerncoloradowriters.

PLEASE NOTE: Effective January 1, 2019 we will no longer be a fee-based membership association, therefore, no longer offering all of the below listed membership benefits. You are welcome to join for the remainder of the year to take advantage of paid-membership benefits, but you will receive a refund in January, 2019, for the remainder of your 1-year membership. 

We will, however, offer a free membership starting January 1 where you'll receive writing news, event updates, and access to a member-only Facebook group to chat about writing and publishing, share news, and even look for critique partners. You'll still be a part of a welcoming and thriving community of writers! 

We will continue to hold our annual conference and yearly retreat, as well as be the go-to resource for writers of all levels and genres in and around northern Colorado.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this transition.

Mission Statement

Whether or not writing is your profession, chances are, it's also your passion. NCW recognizes and understands how important it is to foster this passion. Aside from our own writing, our other passion is to create a supportive and encouraging community where writers can inspire one another to become successful authors. NCW is comprised of novelists, journalists, memoirists, poets, screenwriters, bloggers, children's book writers, and many more--all at varying levels, so regardless of there you are in your writing journey (published or not), you have a place here in NCW.  We also understand, due to the nature of a creative's life, memberships, classes, and other writing events just aren’t in the budget; we don't want that to be a heavy burden (writing itself can be tough enough)! That's why our yearly membership is just $48; that's only $4 a month! It is our hope, this reduced rate will allow writers to take part in classes, events, retreats, and our annual conference, where valuable learning, support, and camaraderie takes place. We'd love to have you join our welcoming community to further your literary goals!

~April Moore, NCW Director
