The Western Music Association was founded in 1988 to foster the professional growth of individual performing members through their web site, the quarterly "Western Way," the annual International Western Music Festival every November, state and regional chapters, and an Educational Outreach Program.

The Western Wordsmiths Chapter started in 2011 to provide more support and opportunities for Western writers within the Western Music Association. Our members include poets, authors, story tellers, song writers and lyricists. Their publications include poems, books, recordings, novels, short stories, non-fiction articles, and videos.

Help needed for the following positions: Chair for Fundraisers, Chair for Poetry in Schools, Chair for Poetry Book of the year, Chair for Poetry CD of the year, Chair for Grant Writing. If you are a Western Wordsmith member, and if you have the time and if you have a thick skin and if and want to volunteer for one of these position, please contact Dale Page.
