Members of NCWN (North Carolina Writers' Network, a 501(c)3 non-profit entity), automatically become members of NCWN-West (North Carolina Writers' Network-West), if they live in Clay, Cherokee, Graham, Macon, Swain, Jackson, Transylvania, Haywood, and Henderson Counties in North Carolina, and some bordering counties in Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina. They enjoy both NCWN-West specific benefits and NCWN benefits.

County Representatives (Reps) are volunteers who wish to bring writers together in their part of the state, and encourage membership in NCWN-West. Each month they plan, conduct, and promote at least one public no-cost writers' event, such as open-mike readings, discussion or critique groups or other writers' gatherings.
