Welcome to the North Shore Writers’ Association!

The NSWA is a fellowship of writers who are at all stages in the writing journey, from novice to professional, published and unpublished. It is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing the literary community through teaching and sharing skills.

For the 2022-23 season, we have returned to the North Vancouver City Library! We are thankful that the West Vancouver Library generously hosted us in the Welsh Hall West for our meetings while the North Van City Library underwent renovations.

Our next Guest Speaker of 2023 will be Tara McGuire. Her book, Holden After and Before, Love Letter for a Son Lost to Overdose, is her first volume-length work. It is a hybrid work in memoir and fiction exploring grief and the opioid crisis in the
aftermath of the death of her son, Holden. See our Events page for more details.

NSWA Annual Writing Contest is closed to submissions for this year!
Winners will be announced during the North Shore Writers Festival and then posted on our website under Activities/Annual Writing Contest.
