The Cat Writers' Association, Inc. (CWA) is an organization of professionals writing, publishing and broadcasting about cats. Our members include writers, editors, publishers, artists, public relations specialists, broadcasters and others. CWA is extremely proud of our member authors and their publications. A newsletter, MEOW, is published quarterly and available to members only. We also have a very informative CWA Mailing List to promote professional communication among those online members of CWA. Our slide presentation will give you a quick overview of CWA.

CWA has initiated a Mentoring Program for its members as yet another advantage of their membership. The purpose of the program is to provide counseling guidelines and a structured process for members to find mentors, while the main goal is for individuals to get one-on-one advice on various professional writing matters.

CWA depends on volunteers! Please consider volunteering - we have positions on several committees that might be of interest and within the scope of your area of expertise.

CWA Seeking Leadership Candidates. If you are a professional member interested in volunteering for elected office, please read our nominations and elections guidelines.


An annual communication contest is open to anyone whose work qualifies and was first published between June 16, 2012 and June 15, 2013, with awards presented at an annual conference held annually. Numerous Special Awards are available through the generosity of corporate and private sponsors.

UPDATE: Annual contest details are now available.

The winners of the 2012 Communications Contest were announced at the annual awards banquet in Los Angeles, CA.
