We offer programs, workshops, awards, critique sessions, open mics and related activities for members and the public. Emerald Coast Writers sponsors an annual student poetry writing contest, publishes an anthology biannually, and maintains the Dr. Francis P. Cassidy Writers Resource Center in Pensacola Cultural Center.
Emerald Coast Writers members are encouraged to send work to our new Editor, Katie Rankin, at [email protected] for publication in ECW’s monthly newsletter, The Legend. Emerald Coast Writers also publishes the biennial anthology, Emerald Coast Review.
Emerald Coast Writers brings together writers and area residents who are interested in writing and the literary heritage of West Florida.
As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, we seek to promote and nurture literary talent in Northwest Florida through educational programs, writers' workshops, open forums, school poetry competitions, community programs, and publications.
