The Track and Field Writers of America (TAFWA) is an organization comprised mostly of written and electronic media members who have a common interest in the journalistic reporting and promotion of track-and-field athletics in the United States.
TAFWA was founded at the 1973 NCAA Track and Field Championships in Baton Rouge and has grown to a membership which now stands at over 300.
It is not required that a member have a full-time position with a formal publication or other media outlet, since in the case of track-and-field in the United States, much of the day-to-day reporting is done through free-lance or volunteer correspondents.
The membership fee is $30 per year, which runs from September through the following August.
