About The Collective

Writers anywhere can help writers everywhere to learn, grow and succeed.

That was the simple thought that Shannon Hanson kept in mind as he laid out his ideas for a new kind of writing group. Of course, when it came time to put all the pieces in place, he turned to other writers. Together we founded The Wordsmith Collective.

Shannon has remained insistent that our group be inclusive regardless of what the person writes or what level they are at on the writing journey. All writers are welcome – even those who haven’t yet written a word. No matter the genre no matter the reason, everyone is welcome and everyone is equal.

The wordsmith Collective is a 501(C) 3, nonprofit, incorporated according to the laws of, and in good standing with the State of Montana.
