The Chaffee County Writers Exchange
fosters writing and encourages publication
through the sharing of resources
and information.

How we work

Based in central Colorado, the Chaffee County Writers Exchange (CCWE) provides members with an opportunity to socialize and learn from others who have similar interests in writing and publishing.

CCWE sponsors recurring writing sessions, such as our free and open to the public WE Write Sessions (Writers Exchange Write Sessions), and occasional reasonably priced workshops led by noted authors. We also exchange information about resources and activities for writers. We post information about our members' publications and achievements and provide links to their websites.

The Writers Exchange started in 1995 with nine members. Until 2002 we were affiliated with the Chaffee County Council on the Arts (CCCA). When the CCCA restructured and became the Arkansas Valley Art Council, our organization separated from the parent organization and obtained our own identity as the Chaffee County Writers Exchange. Our group now has about 75 members. Writers from outside Chaffee County are also welcome to participate in our activities.
