Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to frequent questions. If you don't see the answer to your question, please contact us.

Do I need to be in Ohio to join?

No. But it may help. Anyone worldwide is welcome to join our organization, but note that all of the events will happen in Ohio, and many publishing opportunities will be limited to members with a connection to Ohio.

A “connection to Ohio” may include current residence, place of birth or place of significant achievement (for example, graduation from high school or college).

Is this Columbus Creative Cooperative?

Yes! We were formally Columbus Creative Cooperative. As the organization grew we reevaluated who we can serve and what we can do best, and have since changed our organization to the Ohio Writers’ Association.

I was previously a member of Columbus Creative Cooperative, now what?

All registered members of Columbus Creative Cooperative have been automatically transferred to members of Ohio Writers’ Association. You do not need to take any action. Any paid memberships will remain in effect until their listed expiration dates.

If you were previously a member of Columbus Creative Cooperative, but would not like to be a member of Ohio Writers’ Association, please contact us, and we’ll remove your registration permanently.

How often will you publish? Will it still be anthologies?

We are expanding our publishing! Moving forward, we will continue to periodically produce anthologies, but we will also be moving into publishing long-form work. Most of these opportunities will only be available to members.

How can I get your books?

We will no longer sell books directly from our website, with limited exceptions. Instead, you can order our books wherever you typically buy books – on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or at your local bookstore. If you’re shopping in-store, you may have to request the book be special ordered, but nearly all bookstores in the United States have access to our complete catalog via Ingram.
