Western Writers of America

Western Writers of America, Inc, was founded in 1953 to promote the literature of the American West and bestow Spur Awards for distinguished writing in the Western field. The founders were largely authors who wrote traditional Western fiction, but the organization swiftly expanded to include historians and other nonfiction authors, young adult and romance writers, and writers interested in regional history. Today, WWA has more than 700 members, including screenwriters, songwriters and poets worldwide.
