Wordherders is an association of writers of all ages, experience levels, and genres from Southeast Washington. We meet monthly to discuss writing tools, techniques, and story development topics across multiple genres, and to support and encourage each other toward our personal writing goals. Our goal is to share information and experiences and to inspire and support fellow writers who want to learn the craft and aspire to be, or continue to be, published.
Wordherders meetings are open to any writer, any genre.

“Certainly for artists of all stripes, the unknown, the idea or the form or the tale that has not yet arrived, is what must be found. It is the job of artists to open doors and invite in prophesies, the unknown, the unfamiliar; it’s where their work comes from, although its arrival signals the beginning of the long disciplined process of making it their own. Scientists too, as J. Robert Oppenheimer once remarked, ‘live always at the ‘edge of mystery’ – the boundary of the unknown.’ But they transform the unknown into the known, haul it in like fishermen; artists get you out into that dark sea.” Rebecca Solnit
