About

DWPC is still going strong: More than 200 members after more than 100 years.

The Denver Woman’s Press Club (DWPC), founded in 1898, is one of the oldest women’s press clubs in the nation. But we’re far from old-fashioned!

Our more than 200 members are professional writers all—including journalists, novelists, magazine editors, essayists, freelance writers, poets, historians, and corporate and mass communications specialists.

Read our membership requirements.

We offer a range of public programs, author receptions, and writing seminars for budding and experienced writers.

For upcoming events and seminars, view our current Events.

We award scholarships to talented journalism, mass communications, and creative writing students at area colleges and universities. Read more about our Scholarships.

More than anything, we gather in our historic 1912 clubhouse on Denver’s Capitol Hill to share stories of our myriad writing lives, learn from one another, become better writers, and, at the direction of our founders, “drive dull care away.”
