In the last decade, we have seen massive growth of the writing community in Arizona, thanks to passionate authors, meetup.com, and many writer’s organizations, large and small.

However, it can be difficult for the various corners of our community to reach out to each other and provide support and opportunities for various projects and events.

Our aim is to provide a centralized exchange for independent parts of the community to work and grow together.  We have four sections:


Everything from Poetry Slams to Author’s conferences.


Local Magazines, anthologies, or projects looking for articles or participation.


Critique groups and writing meetups.

Local Books by Local Authors

Find the latest and greatest from local Authors!

  1. I am definitely interested in joining this network of writers. I have published and am in the process of writing a memoir right now. So happy to hear you exist. Please keep me informed.

  3. I am interested in learning how to create a blog and how to get it to generate income. Are there any groups or classes locally that could help me with this?

  4. Are there any Sci-Fi authors that would be interested in doing a series of panels at libraries and Barnes & Noble stores? The Apocalypse Panel will have a moderator and answer questions related to horrific disaster scenarios in fiction. I am also looking to find a moderator for these panels, possibly someone in the media.

  5. I am a local screenwriter looking to help get the word out about an exciting and very unique two-day screenwriting seminar in the Phoenix area. How do I go about getting the event listed on your Events page?

  6. Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries (in SaddleBrooke, AZ, just north of Oro Valley) and Tucson) is hosting an Authors’ Expo on from 9 am to 3 pm February 20, 2016. We are inviting published authors who reside in Southern Arizona to
    • Talk with the attendees who visit their display area
    • Distribute marketing literature
    • Sell and sign their books (or explain where their books can be ordered online)
    • Be listed in the Expo Program. The listing will include the author’s name, title of latest book and contact information (website, email or phone – author’s choice)
    • Contribute a book as a raffle drawing prize (optional)

    We are accepting local authors of all types of books: fiction, non-fiction, self-help, photography, poetry, cookbooks – it you have a publication that you would like to market, we would be interested in communicating with you.

    Each author would pay a $35 fee for an 8’ x 4 ‘ display space (this covers the cost of renting the tables) . If you are interested in obtaining more information and/or registering for this event, please contact Nancy McCluskey-Moore at nmcmoore@yahoo.com.

  8. I am a new Fantasy Author who lives in Arizona. I have two books that are currently on Amazon. The first on that I have written was, The Legends of Aeolyne, that book was a labor of great love and took a long time to write. The second book is Heroes of Aeolyne, it takes place at the same time as the main book. Its not a part 2 but a companion to the the first. It takes short stories of warriors and common folk that will eventually be put into the main story line to help defeat the enemy.

    It is the Dark ages of the World of Aeolyne. The Old Empires and alliances have crumbled into dust and ruin. Small weaker clans and tribes swooped in to claim what was left. Some still held to the ideals of the old and wanted to restore it to is former glory. One Dragon awakes and wants the world to suffer and longs for more power. One seeks to find closer for his families slaughter. Another looks to restore the Fallen king of Elves, but a deadly cult looks to stop him in is quest of restoration.
