About Arizona Professional Writers
Affiliated with the National Federation of Press Women, Arizona Professional Writers is a nonprofit organization of women and men welcoming those who are experienced professionals in the communications field, both active and retired, those who are new to their careers, and students. We work as print and electronic journalists, writers, editors, novelists, graphic artists, photographers, film producers, public relations specialists, and more. We own our own businesses. We work for companies both large and small, for schools, the government and non-profits.
We sharpen career skills, network with top professionals and enjoy the camaraderie of peers. We have an annual communications contest and first place winners can enter in the NFPW national competition. We host professional development workshops/seminars.
Activities often feature speakers who are published writers or experts in other areas of professional communications. APW also offers grant and scholarship opportunities.
