Writers Guild of Alberta (WGA) was founded in 1980 as a community organization for writers based in Alberta, Canada. It claims to be the largest provincial writers' organization in Canada.[1]

Some of the programs include a magazine (WestWord) six times a year, a biannual writers conference, writers retreats, manuscript reading service, and the Alberta Literary Awards composed of many literary awards presented yearly to Alberta writers and books.

The founding president was Rudy Wiebe.[2]
