Professional Writers of Prescott, also known as Prescott Writers, is a network of published and non-published writers and editors who live in the “Quad-Cities” — Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Dewey/Humboldt — and in the Verde Valley — Sedona, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Cornville, and Clarkdale — in Yavapai County, Arizona.
Among our members are writers of all persuasions and genres: poets, novelists, short story writers, journalists, freelancers and essayists, memoirists and creative nonfiction writers, technical and grant writers, and writers of fiction and nonfiction for children and young adults. We aim for the highest expression of our craft and are dedicated to sharing our expertise with less experienced writers. See the PWP Meet Yourself feature for more information about our emerging and experienced writers.
PWP sponsors monthly speaker programs, member networking meetings, and critique groups. We schedule three to four workshops per year (open to PWP members only). Many of our members sponsor local book signings, readings, and lectures, as well as other book-related celebrations in Arizona and outside the state. Our Annual PWP Writing Contest is very popular and open to writers on a national scale.
PWP’s community outreach activities include mentoring young high school writers, sponsoring the annual Founders Award Scholarship for creative writing students at Yavapai College, and cosponsoring a student writing contest with Prescott Public Library, Prescott Valley Library, and Chino Valley Public Library. We invite the community to attend our meeting whether members of PWP or not.
