We are a community of Houston-area writers striving to help each other in our craft as we strive toward writing careers. The Guild was founded in 1998 by Roger Paulding with seven participants and has grown to more than 200 today. Over its first fifteen years, the Guild sponsored 36 workshops and six 2-day conferences. Roger led the group until 2013, when he passed the reins to Pamela Fagan Hutchins.

 Won’t you join us in some of our great programs? Browse our site to see all we have to offer.

Members receive substantial discounts on workshops, conferences and contests.  Feel free to sign up for our monthly newsletter, whether you join or not. You must be a member to participate in critique circles (although you can visit once as a guest).

Each year we are run by elected members. Here is our 2014-2015 Officers and Staff who welcome you to contact them about their areas of responsibility:
