Our purpose: “To nourish, stimulate and fund the development of the literary arts
by holding educational conferences, workshops, public readings and such other activities,
as determined by the members to be necessary, appropriate and within the limitations
set for nonprofit corporations in the State of Georgia, to support the advancement
of writers throughout the Chattahoochee Valley and beyond.”
Creating a Community of Writers
CVW had its roots in several writing groups in Columbus, Georgia and the surrounding
area. A small ad hoc group formed in 2006 and worked with Columbus Public Library,
local business people and writers to raise funds for the first Conference held in
2007. 2012 marked the Sixth Annual Chattahoochee Valley Writers Conference. Our
2013 goal is to sponsor mini-workshops and events throughout the year and to work
with Chattahoochee Valley Libraries’ Upcoming Children’s Book Festival in May 2013.
Save the Dates! Chattahochee Valley Writers Conference September 25 - 28, 2013 More Information Coming Soon.
