The Palm Springs Writers Guild is pleased to announce the launch of its new Scholarship Program. This new program aims to offer multiple $5,000 scholarships to college-bound high school seniors graduating in spring '22 and beyond who have demonstrated a keen interest in and talent for writing.

This fundraiser supports the creation and continuity of the scholarship program. Please visit our Fundraiser website to begin bidding now on the many exciting items available in our silent auction, or to lock in your opportunity to win a Holland America cruise for two to Alaska, the Caribbean, Canada, New England, or Mexico!

You'll also be able to purchase tickets to the fundraiser's culminating gala event: A Dark and Stormy Night, on April 8. The gala will feature award-winning author Andrew Neiderman, actress Joyce Bulifant, and musician Johnny Meza. Plus we'll have a Live Auction and more. It will be an amazing evening in support of a great cause.

Thank you for your generosity!

Critique Groups

Critique Groups are touted by many members to be the best benefit of membership. The guiding principle of the group is to critique, not criticize. We are here to help, not tear down. We are here not to change your unique writing style, but to help you strengthen itLearn More... 


The Palm Springs Writers Guild offers several types of contests throughout the program season. Most contest winners will receive a prize of some denomination. For experienced writers, this may also be an opportunity for creative challenge by writing outside of his/her genre. Learn More...
