Watermark Writers provides our annual Young Writers’ Program to teens as well as writers’ conferences, poet and author readings and songwriter presentations. We present Words and Music, a donation event that introduces internationally acclaimed poets, authors and singer songwriters to our community. We provide community education and the opportunity for our neighbors to meet and gather to share uncompromised programs not normally available locally. We offer a free writers’ workshop each week to encourage and support all manner of writers. Watermark Writers offers programs that assist authors, artists and songwriters in sharing and promoting their work with the intention of enhancing the community through both cultural growth and financial opportunity.
