Writers helping writers since 1998

There's no better place to be a writer than Whidbey Island, and one of the reasons for that is the Whidbey Island Writers Association, a vital component of the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts (NILA). 

Housed in the old Bayview School at 5611 Bayview Road near Langley, the Whidbey Island Writers Association brings aspiring and published writers together for learning and networking. 

Don’t miss the Thursday, April 21, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. workshop “Social Media for Writers – Twitter” with Tom Trimbath.  Free for WIWA members; $10 for non-members.


Upcoming Saturday In-Depth Workshops: 

Saturday, May 14, 9:30 – 4:30: How to Write a Successful Picture Book with Bonny Becker, author of A Visitor for Bear.


Saturday, June 11, 9:30 – 4:30: Words that Matter: Forms of Flash Fiction and Flash Nonfiction with Priscilla Long, author of The Writer's Portable Mentor.

Coworking for Writers at NILA

Coworking sessions each Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. provide writers the opportunity to come together with others who share similar values and writing goals: collaboration, openness, community, accessibility, sustainability. Work side by side in an inspiring environment without the distractions of home. All writers welcome. Free for WIWA members, $5 donation for non-members. Read more about Coworking for Writers here.

The Whidbey Island Writers Association is an organization for writers, about writers, and by writers.
