The mission of Willamette Writers is to provide and encourage a creative environment and support system for current and aspiring writers. Since its beginning in 1965, Willamette Writers has provided meeting places for the exchange of ideas and information and has initiated programs designed to help writers increase skills related to the craft of writing. Both published, self-published, screenwriters and aspiring writers are invited to join. Dues are $45 a year. Need help writing a novel? A screenplay? Promoting a self-published novel? This is a good group to join.

Selected 500-word reflections may be submitted by contributors to any previous or current issue of The Timberline Review, and to any current member of Willamette Writers. 

Topics may be an element of craft, the business of writing as a profession, or another aspect of the writing life. Selected reflections will be featured on The Timberline Review website.
