Whether you are a freelancer looking for a place to showcase your talent, or an organization or business in need of someone with a special skill set – welcome!

The Midwest Writing Center created this database in response to the frequent inquiries from the community for information on individuals who provide such services as critiquing, creative and technical writing, layout, graphic design, publishing, web design, marketing help, and many others.

We believe that featuring the talented individuals in Western Illinois and Eastern Iowa that perform these services is one more way to carry out our mission of “fostering appreciation for the written word, supporting and educating its creators.”

Those who are listed in this Directory have included their preferred contact information and a professional profile highlighting their skills, experience, and education.

You can search this database by professional profile or by specialty.

It is up to the client and the freelance professional listed in this directory to determine a contract for the service provided, time frame for the job to be completed, fees or charge associated with the service, and other expectations. We encourage creating written agreements.

In most cases, you must be a member of the Midwest Writing Center to be included in our online listing. Membership dues (starting at $30 annually; $25 for students/seniors; $50 for a family membership). Dues can be paid by check, cash or by PayPal below.

Please email our Executive Directory, Ryan Collins, at mwc@midwestwritingcenter.org for details.)
