Who We Are
New Mexico Writers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and connecting the state’s literary community.
Our annual dinner, now in its fourth year, brings established and aspiring writers together to celebrate and inspire each other. While the gathering is rich in conversation and connection, it has a higher goal. Proceeds from the dinner provide funds to support outreach and grant making endeavors that assist New Mexico writers seeking to further their craft.
In addition to the annual dinner, we publish a monthly newsletter that features literary happenings throughout the state, including book releases, readings, workshops, grant opportunities, and more.
We're also working to strengthen collaborations with state government, schools, and other entities who can help us connect the state’s literary community and its aspiring writers.
In today's world, literary voices are more important than ever. New Mexico Writers is committed to supporting the diverse and original writers who populate our state and to continuing its long tradition of literary excellence and creative community.
New Mexico Writers is dedicated to nurturing new writers throughout the land of enchantment, a state steeped in vibrant literary traditions.
We provide grants, networking, and career development opportunities to aspiring writers from diverse communities throughout New Mexico.
We believe that by addressing cultural, financial, and professional barriers facing aspiring New Mexico writers, we will build a vibrant literary community that reflects the diversity of our state.
