Who Are We?

MWA-Montgomery is an affiliate of the Maryland Writers Association (MWA), a voluntary, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art, business, and craft of writing. Our group strives to create a safe and supportive community where both published and unpublished writers can come together in fellowship to learn from one another, grow, network, and realize their writing dreams.

Established in June, 2012, MWA-Montgomery is one of several new MWA chapters. With over 200 writers on the chapter mailing list, our group includes newly fledged “closet writers” — those who have just stepped out into public with their writing, as well as single- and multi-book authors.

Where Do We Meet?

MWA-Montgomery meets monthly on alternating first Saturday mornings (10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and second Wednesday evenings (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.) at the Mid-County Community Recreation Center.

Are Meetings for Members Only?

No. Visitors are encouraged to attend and see what we have to offer. The first meeting is free, but subsequent visits will cost $5 per meeting.
