Since 1898, the club has provided a gathering place for professional women newspaper journalists and published authors to organize, socialize, and earn a living through writing. Until that time, there had been no other such place for professional women writers.
In the 1980s, the club broadened its membership to include publicists and other allied professions. Today, the Denver Woman’s Press Club honors its heritage by promoting professional development and providing support to members through educational, social, and philanthropic means.
