Who are we?

The Foothills Writers Group is an inclusive community of adult writers
living in Okotoks and the Foothills area.

Our Mission

At FWG, we empower writers to reach their creative potential through education, networking opportunities, community, and support.

Dedicated to growing and succeeding together, we leverage our skills and strengths, share knowledge freely, and whenever possible, create opportunities for our authors to find readers. Find out more.


The Foothills Writers Group meets at the Okotoks Public Library every third Thursday to discuss the writing craft, marketing opportunities, and the best way to support one another. Contact us to join.
