The League of Utah Writers
The League of Utah Writers is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering friendship, education, and encouragement to the poets and writers of Utah. New members are always welcome.
The League of Utah Writers is supported in part by a grant from the Utah Division of Arts & Museums and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Our organization is dedicated to the encouragement and improvement of all writers in their writing skills. Members are writers and poets with various interests at all levels of skill and professionalism, and they meet in local chapters around the state to write, read, and discuss their work. They share ideas and expertise on the art of writing. Special guests may be invited to address chapter meetings.
Chapter meetings are open to the public and new members are always welcome. For more information, contact the president of the chapter nearest you.
