Women's Fiction Writers Association is an inclusive organization of writers creating layered stories in which the plot is driven by the main character's emotional journey.

We believe that women’s fiction heightens human connection, engenders empathy, and illuminates new perspectives. By consciously supporting all voices and providing tools and resources to rigorously develop craft, the Women’s Fiction Writers Association fosters successful careers, meaningful relationships, and the creation of resonant, diverse stories.

Whether you are an aspiring, debut, or multi-published author, we offer support and resources to help you improve and succeed. Members gain exclusive access to craft workshops and webinars taught by industry leaders, a bi-weekly recap of industry news, pitch sessions with women's fiction agents, and more!
