About Us

We're a bunch of writers. That is what we are. May we count the ways …

Hello! We are the Carolina Piedmont Writers Guild.

Our objective is to welcome, support, encourage, and mentor writers of all forms, genres, perspectives, and levels of expertise. New writers and writers-to-be are always welcome. We don't have a formal membership. You are a "member" if you participate, submit, or merely cheer us on!

The Guild also holds an annual contest (The Carolina Prize) and publishes a yearly literary journal (County Lines).

The Carolina Piedmont Writers Guild Inc. is a a 501(c)(3), non-profit, 509(a)(2), public charity.
