Let the pen be your tool and the words be your craft

About Us

Chattanooga Writers’ Guild, or CWG, as we are affectionately nicknamed, is a state and federally qualified non-profit organization bringing together writers of all ages, genres, and experience levels. We welcome beginners, professionals, and everyone in between, to join us. Please review our Membership page to learn all about the benefits of affiliation with the oldest active writers’ organization in the Chattanooga metropolitan area, and the most vibrant chapter in the state of Tennessee.


We welcome writers of all genres and experience levels to join us. Our members are diverse and include authors that are prolifically published and internationally acclaimed, as well as some with modest publishing accomplishments (so far!). Some of our members are seeking their first publisher or just getting started with their writing, and we even have some that do not seek publication at all, but simply enjoy writing and the company of writers.

Membership Services

As a nonprofit organization, Chattanooga Writers’ Guild provides services to both our members and the public. See our Membership Benefits to get a sampling of exclusive benefits of being a member. Members have ongoing opportunities to participate in CWG in a significant way, as a leader or in another role where they can have a voice in the organization, build their portfolios, gain experience, meet others, and receive recognition and rewards for their contributions.
