WELCOME TO THE TULSA NIGHTWRITERS CLUB!
Tulsa NightWriters Club (TNWC) is the oldest writers club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. An offshoot of the daytime Tuesday Writers, TNWC was started in the 1950s for people who worked. The history of this club was not recorded. Author Peggy Fielding first visited the club in the 1970s, when members spent most of their time discussing grandchildren. Ms. Fielding took the helm and changed the club’s course forever. The distinguished TNWC logo, still used today, was designed by one of Fielding’s students, Robert Eilers.
Most TNWC members also belong to the statewide organization, Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc., (OWFI). The first weekend of May each year, this group sponsors a large conference. Writers from all over Oklahoma and neighboring states come together for the Conference. Editors and agents are brought from New York, California, and other publishing hubs of the country to speak and to meet individually with writers wanting to pitch their work. Many novels and nonfiction books have found a publisher during this symposium. OWFI also sponsors a writing contest and winners are announced at the May conference.
Meetings of TNWC are held at the Martin Regional Library at 2601 South Garnett Road, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the third Tuesday of each month. Officially, we meet from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., although many of us arrive early and stay late sharing information and friendship. Published authors share their experiences and knowledge with unpublished authors as a way of giving back, for the sake of the craft. Our goal is to meet the needs of individual members in order to learn and grow as writers
TNWC’s dues are $15.00 annually. You can find the application to join TNWC online at https://tulsanightwriters.wordpress.com/. Print it out and send it to our treasurer.
You may join OWFI online at http://www.owfi.org. The dues to join OWFI are $30 per year, but the discounted rate is $25 if you list TNWC as your affiliate club on the application.
The payment year for both clubs runs from October 1 to September 30. Members can belong to one or both writing clubs.
Join, participate, and reap the rewards of improving your writing skills with a group that cares.

Tulsa NightWriters Club is an affiliate of the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, Inc (OWFI). It is not required to join OWFI to become a Tulsa NightWriter, nor is it required to join Tulsa NightWriters to join OWFI. Joining one organization does not make you member of the other. They are separate organizations with separate membership requirements. Many people who do not wish to be part of a local writer’s club join OWFI as a member-at-large. However, we strongly encourage members to join both organizations so they can enjoy the benefits of both. If a person wants to be a member of both, we offer to file both memberships for them through our treasury. The following link is a good example of why it is beneficial to be members of both organizations.
