The U.W.O understands both the difficulties and the joys of being a writer in this country — from the isolation, frustration, financial concerns, and the need for information and assistance to the elation that comes with each publication. Members of U.W.O benefit from a range of services that are not otherwise easily available to writers working in isolation. Overall, being a member of a writing organization can provide a range of benefits that can help writers improve their craft, connect with others in the industry, and advance their careers.
The organizations provide an opportunity to connect with other writers, agents, editors, and publishers. This networking can lead to valuable connections and collaborations, as well as potential publication opportunities.
