The Writers Connection - E. C. Murray, Publisher
Dear Readers and Writers,            

       The Writers Connection assists emerging writers as well as those who've tasted success. Please see our second page  for Writers Resources in the Puget Sound and beyond. We also publish a newsletter in which we've interviewed Elizabeth George, Erik Larson, Hank Searle, Jim Lynch, Randi Platt, Debbie Macomber, Theo Nestor, Garth Stein, Susan Rich, Mike Lawson, and more, about their writer's journey.      

          The Writers Connection originally linked writers in Gig Harbor and Kitsap County. We've hosted a community writers party, a writers conference, and co-hosted Gig Harbor's Open Mic. We also began a Face book page, Gig Harbor - Kitsap Writers Connection.!/pages/Gig-Harbor-Kitsap-Writers-Connection/315836967853 .   
            We hope you find these resources helpful as you follow your writing dreams. Please contact us at
