MWW21 Virtual Conference: Craft + Community

Wednesday – Saturday

July 28-31, 2021

This year’s summer Midwest Writers Workshop will again be held online (using video conference technology). We have designed an online version of MWW that offers plenty of instruction, networking, and the sense of community that makes MWW so special. Wherever you’re located, plan to attend our 48th writers’ conference!

Our online conference features:

From July 28-31, a total of 23 sessions, via Zoom video conferencing. The sessions will feature a variety of content that will be determined by the individual faculty member and may feature lecture, possibly prompt work, and vital, informative, enjoyable discussions that build your skills as a writer.

MWW21 features a remarkable faculty who know their stuff, providing information for both aspiring and practicing writers at all stages of their journey.

**Instruction led by renowned faculty for the genres of:

  • Fiction: Angela Jackson-Brown 
  • Fiction/Suspense: Jessica Strawser 
  • Young Adult: Jay Coles 
  • Nonfiction/Memoir: Pam Mandel 
  • Nonfiction/Essays: Silas Hansen     
  • Children’s: Chadwick Gillenwater “Professor Watermelon”
  • Poetry: Allison Joseph
  • Comics: Dirk Manning

 **Private Facebook Group for camaraderie and to build connections with other participants and faculty.

**Can’t attend all the sessions live? No problem. MWW is offering archival video access to ALL attendees for ALL sessions and the content from other faculty members, allowing you to audit other sessions at your convenience during MWW21 and for the following three months.

It’s important to keep our MWW writing community as active as we can during this pandemic and that’s why this online version of MWW can be more important than ever to helping nurture aspiring and accomplished writers to improve their craft and achieve their publishing goals.

The cost for our Virtual MWW21 experience is $249.

No more choosing among breakout sessions. Attend ALL 23 sessions live or watch recorded sessions for up to one month later. You can even rewatch sessions you find particularly helpful.  You’re getting more sessions for less money, and you can attend in your PJs!

At an on-site conference, your head can be spinning with all of the new information. Our online conference gives writers a place to go back and revisit and catch some of the content that they missed.

Do you dream of getting your story out of your heart and into a book? It’s time to turn that dream into reality. Let’s get those words onto paper and craft your story into a powerful offering.

That’s the vision behind our mission statement and our passion to help writers; MWW21 is designed to guide you to the next step in your writing journey.

Whether you’re a beginner with zero experience, or you’ve been writing for years, you’ll want the collective wisdom of our conference faculty. These authors will empower you to dream, write, and publish the story inside you.

Join us during the week to be inspired and equipped to take the next step in your writing journey.
