The mission of MWW is to give all writers the opportunity to improve their craft, to associate with highly credentialed professionals, and to network with other writers.
How It Works
We have 35+ different instructional sessions with top quality faculty during our 3-day program on everything from fiction to nonfiction, marketing, and ways to get your creative juices flowing. Thursday focuses on genre-specific intensive sessions. Friday and Saturday are packed with sessions on the craft of writing and the business of writing.
MWW will celebrate our 41st summer workshop, July 24-26, 2014!
