About the Western Ohio Writers Association

The Western Ohio Writers Association (WOWA) was founded in October of 2008 by Gery L. Deer and Barbara Deer. We have a wonderfully diverse group of writers that includes poets, novelists, journalists, screenwriters, professional copywriters, and other creative minds.
