Support Midwest Writing Center via Birdies for Charity!

Birdies for Charity is back! With a guaranteed 5% match, Birdies is the best way to have the greatest impact with your support of MWC.

MWC was among the first arts organizations in the Quad Cities to offer virtual programming after the pandemic started, and as things are opening back up, we continue to develop new programs, engage with new audiences, and educate people about how transformative a simple writing practice can be for everyone, regardless of age and experience.

Call for Submissions – National Poetry Month

Calling all QC poets! Dead Poets Espresso & the Midwest Writing Center are partnering to feature local poets’ work during April, which is National Poetry Month.

The selected poems will be featured at Dead Poet’s Espresso (1525 3rd Ave A, Moline, IL) and the Moline Public Library throughout the month of April. If enough submissions are received, additional poems will be selected and rotated throughout the month. We are also looking for other partner venues to showcase the poems—if you are interested in hosting, please contact MWC.
