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is a fellowship of writers who are at all stages in the writing journey, from novice to professional, published and unpublished.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.

Our 2023-24 season is gearing up. Monthly meetings resume September 18. Fall events and future meetings will be posted as they’re finalized.
