Who We Are
The Writers’ Guild of Alberta (WGA) was formed in 1980 to provide a meeting ground and collective voice for all the writers of the province. Our members write in every genre and at every level of expertise.

The WGA helps give Alberta writers a sense of unity and community, and is the largest provincial writers’ organization in Canada.

The WGA believes that:
1. The literary arts are essential to the well-being of all individuals, communities and the economy of Alberta;
2. Working in partnership with other organizations contributes to the quality of life in Alberta;
3. Networking and collaboration are beneficial to innovation and the creative process;
4. A safe and welcoming environment is essential for writers to pursue their craft;
5. Knowledge and ongoing development are fundamental to creative growth.

The WGA welcomes all writers! Reach out to us to connect with your writers’ community.
