Central Indiana Writers’ Association, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1976, is a community of novelists, poets, and essayists writing in all genres. We come together once a month and provide our members with a host of different activities and support. Everyone is welcome!

And while CIWA encourages every writer to continue writing, we do not support any form of pornography, erotica, or BDSM writing. There are writing groups for those genres elsewhere.

Attention: the new email for Central Indiana Writers’ Association is centralindianawriters1976@gmail.com


Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2023. Get those poems submitted! See Writing Contest tab for more information!

Central Indiana Writers’ Association Zoom Meeting – June 19, 2023

7:00-8:30 P.M.(EST)


Guest Speaker Jessica Conoley (https://jessicaconoley.com/)

You’re lucky enough to know what your dream is and are living it, so why are so many writers unhappy? It’s not just because we’re in a “hard” industry, it’s because we feel like we have no control.

This workshop teaches you to build a healthy creative mindset. we’ll delve into the mental challenges you’ll face in a creative career and how to take your next steps with confidence.

Walk away with a mindset emergency tool kit, career accomplishment log, know-how to build your creativity support triangle, and more.

See you there!
