About us


Named for the vast valley where the chapter’s founders call home.  Set against a backdrop of majestic Rocky Mountain peaks, Montana’s Flathead Valley stretches from Glacier National Park- The Crown of the Continent, – to Flathead Lake, which is the largest freshwater lake on the left side of the Mississippi River.

We think this is the perfect place to live, work, and play, and a great place to write. But, not everyone can live here.. that’s why our online meetings are open to everyone no matter where you call home.   

Our defining principle is that we all improve our mastery of the craft and achieve success through collaboration, collegiality, and comradeship. We are the founding chapter of the Wordsmith Collective which was formed by writers here, for writers everywhere. 

Wherever you call home and no matter how you found us,  we extend a Big Sky country howdy to ya. If you are in the Flathead we would love to meet you. Why not drop by one of our meetings.          

We meet the first four Mondays each month.  Our meetings are open to writers at any point on their journey, no matter the genre. whether you have never written a word and don’t know where to start or you are the author of multiple best selling books you will find fraternity, friendly encouragement, and free advice. We look forward to what we can learn from you.
