Please note we also have a division of the Association specifically for students and young writers called the South Dakota Young Writers League, open to all middle school and high school level students regardless of race, gender, national origin, religion or disability.  Please click here for more information.

Although we try to stay as “green” as possible there will be occasional paper mail-outs.  Membership dues and other fees collected are used to help defray the cost of such endeavors and any contributions over and above dues are appreciated and carefully administered.
