The Midwest Writing Center is the only nonprofit literary arts organization in the Quad Cities. MWC assists writers of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels to develop their craft, find audiences, and establish a writing community where they can learn and grow in a supportive environment.
Through public readings, workshops, critique groups, contests, publications, and partnerships with other organizations, the Center enriches the community with its emphasis on creativity, education, and self-expression through writing. With a wide range of partnerships, programs, and publications, MWC provides over 300 hours of programming (much of it offered at no cost to the public), and over 4,500 instances of service annually. We maintain a writing library and resource center at our office space in the Rock Island Public Library in downtown Rock Island, IL.
