Supporting and connecting the literary community in New Mexico.
New Mexico Writers is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and connecting the state’s literary community. Our mission is to provide grants, as well as networking and career development opportunities to aspiring and established writers from diverse communities throughout New Mexico and the greater Navajo Nation. We believe that by addressing cultural, financial and professional barriers facing local writers, we will build a vibrant literary community that reflects the diversity of our state.
Our annual dinner brings established and aspiring writers together to celebrate and inspire each other and serves to celebrate each year’s grant recipients.
We publish The New Mexico Writer, a monthly newsletter that features literary happenings throughout the state, including book releases, readings, workshops, grant opportunities, and more. You may subscribe free of charge by clicking here.
