Our next CWC general meeting is May 19th, 2020 at 6:30pm (ET) if NC STAY AT HOME order is lifted.

Welcome to the Charlotte Writers’ Club website!

The Charlotte Writers' Club (or CWC, as our members affectionately call it) provides a great opportunity for writers of all forms—and there are so many—to meet and discuss the latest trends, commiserate on projects, find critique groups, and participate in contests and workshops. This club is for you, the writer, to help develop your craft and keep the words coming. Sign up for our free newsletter to stay up-up-to date on the latest CWC speakers, contests, workshops, and member kudos.

This club has something for everyone. Come meet fellow writers—poets, novelists, creative writers, short-story writers, essayists, article writers, journalists, dramatists, editors, fablers, ghost writers, historical writers, lyricists, playwrights, reporters, rhymers, satirists, scriptwriters, sonneteers, autobiographers, biographers, and more—story tellers of all kinds.
