About CAL

Established in 1931 to “foster the art and craft of authorship,” the Colorado Authors’ League is comprised of more than 250 professional writers, including authors of adult fiction and nonfiction, cookbooks, children and young adult books, playwrights, poets and bloggers.

CAL’s hosts writers and speakers at luncheons offering insights on a variety of topics.

CAL also sponsors writing seminars and scholarships.

The Colorado Authors’ League:

  • fosters career success through networking with other professional writers
