Colorado Authors' League

Colorado Authors' League

It was a special moment when the Colorado Authors' League accepted me into their organization. I still find it odd to be a peer among the talent in this group–seeing my name and work listed in their company is an honor. CAL is a professional organization that supports local Colorado authors. They hold workshops and social events that helps authors navigate the many steps of the writing and publishing process.

Established in 1931 to “foster the art and craft of authorship,” the Colorado Authors’ League is comprised of more than 250 professional writers, including authors of adult fiction and nonfiction, cookbooks, children and young adult books, playwrights, poets and bloggers.

The Colorado Authors’ League:

  • fosters career success through networking with other professional writers
  • encourages friendships with other working writers
  • develops creative writing via education and interaction with interesting speakers, ideas, and each other
