About Us

The Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers’ Guild has served the writers of Central Missouri since 1959. We sponsor a variety of activities throughout the year to provide writers both the encouragement to keep writing and the opportunity to perfect their craft.


We invite anyone who writes or wants to write to join in our efforts by becoming a member of the CCMWG. Our membership is diverse, representing many literary genres and levels of both ambition and accomplishment. Writers who want merely to write for their own enjoyment and self-expression are as welcome as those who regularly find publishers for their work.

Come and visit some of the activities detailed on these pages and join us in the promotion of the craft of writing in Central Missouri. Information about our next meetings will be found on the Meetings page, as well as our upcoming Show Me Writers MASTERCLASS  in partnership with Mizzou Publishing:


Writers wishing to join CCMWG may do so by sending your name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number, along with a check for the annual dues ($15.00 for full-time students; $25.00 for others) to:

P.O. Box 7628
Columbia, MO 65205-7628

or with credit/debit card
