Writing Books/writing associations question


What writing associations do you suggest that nonfiction writers should join? Thank you, Bob.

Dear Bob,

There's no universal answer to this question. It depends on what you're looking for in terms of support, benefits, etc.

I would probably start by looking for a writers association in your city or region and/or in your genre. You'll find a list of writer's groups across the country at this link:

If there's one where you live that holds regular meetings, that could be a good place to make connections, network and learn more.

Good luck!
