CWC History

For more than 95 years, the mission of the Charlotte Writers' Club has been to create a supportive writing environment within the greater Charlotte community. Today the CWC continues to serve numerous members, including some of the region's best-known writers.

Founded in 1922 by Mrs. A.L. Kimball, the Charlotte Writers' Club filled a much needed void. When Mrs. Kimball moved to the Charlotte area, she discovered that no writing club was available and set about starting one.

The club has grown considerably over the years and now includes over 200 members and a "branch" in the Lake Norman area -- referred to as CWC-North. CWC hosts several meetings/events each season in Charlotte and Davidson. For more information on CWC, visit the History page.

As a member of The Charlotte Writers' Club, you will enjoy:

  • Monthly email newsletters
  • Informative monthly programs with presentations from accomplished writers on everything from tips on craft to the lastet trends in publishing
  • Interaction with other writers in your genre, as well as peer critique group opportunities
  • Advance notice of literary events, such as workshops, panel discussions and reading opportunities for CWC and many community partner organizations
  • Public opportunities to read from your work
  • Membership discounts on CWC workshops and contests

Membership dues are $35 for individuals, and $20 for full-time students. Guests are welcome to attend up to two general meetings before deciding to join.  If you would like to help support the CWC, please consider becoming a Benefactor of The Charlotte Writers' Club with a donation of $100+.
