The VOWA Mission
The Virginia Outdoor Writers Association is a coalition of writers, photographers, and video/film producers who inform through various media on the out-of-doors and its enjoyment. Through this association, we strive to improve ourselves in our craft and increase our knowledge and understanding of the outdoors.
We pledge our support to the conservation of natural resources and to the best precepts governing their consumption and recreational use. Above all, we pledge to maintain the highest ethical standards in the exercise of our craft.
