What Others Have To Say…
“Being part of the Midwest Writers Workshop was a transformative experience. So many passionate, excited, creative people, so much wonderful energy and knowledge!”
“I’ve had the MOST fun teaching at #MWW16. I started out interning at this conference, and now I’m teaching a five-hour writing intensive?! Wow.”
“The Midwest Writers Workshop remains at the top of my list of favorite conference experiences. The focused curriculum, helpful staff, and welcoming participants all make this one of the best organized writing events I’ve yet seen.”
“Over the years, I’ve participated in more conferences than I can count, but time after time, Midwest Writers Workshop ranks among the best of the best. The students are anxious to learn, the faculty comes to teach, and the result is electrifying.“
“Midwest Writers Workshop is a very special place for writers. I’ve been speaking and attending its sessions for nearly 15 years, and the sense of community and support is outstanding. It has played a role in launching numerous successful author careers—unsurprising, since it works so thoughtfully to fulfill its mission of helping writers flourish and be their best selves.”
“I’ll go just about anywhere to talk about the agony and ecstasy of writing fiction, but I’ve found the standard of excellence against which all writers conferences will be measured: the Midwest Writers Workshop in the Ball State University campus in Muncie, Indiana. Not only is the hospitality without peer, the staff is professional, the participants lively and whip-smart, the faculty engaging and edifying. Wanna believe that people still love to write and read? Come to Muncie!”
