Help our community grow

About Us.

Founded in August 2002 by Jerlean S. Noble, the Columbia Writers Alliance is a non-profit organization that is open to all published authors and aspiring writers. Many of our writers are now published authors. Many beginning poets have written over 100 poems!

As we celebrate Lillian’s achievements, we are also excited to see who will be next to join our esteemed ranks of scholarship winners. If you or someone you know is a dedicated and talented young writer, we encourage you to apply for our next scholarship opportunity. Our book club is always on the lookout for new voices and perspectives to add to our community, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for the next generation of writers.
