Welcome To ANWA

American Night Writers Association (ANWA, pronounced "ann-wah") is a peer network for women members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) world-wide who are interested in writing. LDS women writers, from beginners to published authors, are invited to join. Our purpose is to encourage, assist, educate, and motivate members to write, and, if they desire, to publish their works.
