The Eastern Shore Writers’ Association, founded in 1985, is a nonprofit, volunteer organization supporting writers, other writers’ groups, and the literary arts across the Delmarva Peninsula and the Eastern Shore.
We welcome members to share experiences with other writers about every facet of converting ideas, feelings, hopes, dreams, and opinions to the printed word. We are poets, novelists, and writers of stories, essays, articles, and memoirs. Members write fiction and non fiction, for the page, stage, and screen. Some are editors and small publishers, others work in other areas of the publishing world. Some write for the simple pleasure of the process. Others write so family history survives them. Our members range from individuals who aspire to write, to those who have published nearly all of their lives. Many of our members have been awarded prizes, grants, residencies, and fellowships for their work. Whatever your reason for writing, ESWA provides a supportive community.
The Eastern Shore Writers’ Association serves and assists its members in their educational and literary pursuits–serving professional, aspiring and amateur writers in various creative forms and media. ESWA also serves the greater Delmarva community by providing a robust network for the advancement of the literary arts and literacy in general in our region.
