ABOUT WRITERS OF SOUTHERN NEVADA
Founded in 2010, Writers of Southern Nevada (WSN), a 501(c)3 organization, strives to advance the craft and the business of writing through education, collaboration, networking, and access to resources.
History: WSN sponsored a Memoir Conference in 2011, a Non-Fiction Conference in 2012 and a 2-day Fiction Writing Conference in 2013. All three were very well received. However, in early 2014, instead of working to produce another writing conference, the WSN Board of Directors looked at what was missing in the southern Nevada writing community and saw a need to expand beyond sponsoring conferences.
Responding to multiple suggestions and requests since inception, a fundamental reorganization took place and our transformation towards becoming a membership-based organization is, at last, nearly complete!
As of October 2014, WSN will become a fellowship of authors, journalists, librarians, copy editors, magazine editors, screenwriters, the City of Las Vegas, various media outlets and others who love the written word. Rather than compete with the excellent fiction writing conference sponsored by the Henderson Writers Group each April, or the always interesting monthly speaker series sponsored by the Las Vegas Writers Group, or the Las Vegas Valley Book Festival, WSN will seek to inspire, support, educate and encourage writers as they develop their craft and careers by focusing on its members and the ever changing tides and trends of the publishing industry.
WSN MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS:
- detailed membership listings with areas of expertise
- a speakers bureau
- support for local author book signings
- co-sponsorship of activities organized by other writing groups
- local readings
- an annual writers retreat
- the WSN blog
- and group discounts on local web-design, editing and book cover design services.
The new WSN will help our vibrant, exciting and colorful writing community flourish not just locally, but also beyond the Las Vegas valley.
Why not JOIN NOW? A twelve-month membership costs only $45.
