Welcome to the Houston Writers Guild

     The Houston Writers Guild is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization working to create a community of writers of all skill levels. Together we strive to improve our writing craft and help each other build successful careers through education, collaborative marketing efforts, and camaraderie.

     The Guild offers a myriad of programs for both published and unpublished writers.  It creates opportunities to build careers through networking, as well as, opportunities for author book sales throughout the Greater Houston area and neighboring communities. The Guild is also a place for hobbyist authors to enjoy writing in a relaxed and fun environment.


     Please note that the Guild is run by volunteers. When contacting us, please allow 4-7 business days for a response as the directors work to support our writing community in the midst of their personal and professional lives.


We appreciate your patience.
