Welcome To ANWA

American Night Writers Association (ANWA, pronounced "ann-wah") is a unique network for women who belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and are interested in writing. The Association  offers an annual membership for $24 and was founded in Arizona by Marsha Ward in October, 1986. The purpose of our Association is to encourage, assist, educate, and motivate members to write, and if they desire, to publish their work. LDS women writers, from beginners to published authors, are invited to join.
