Peninsula Writers — Who We Are

pw1Peninsula Writers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to, you guessed it, writing!  We are located in Michigan (hence the Peninsula part of our name), and we host several events each year.  Links to information about these conferences can be found on the tabs above.  We also help organize and support small writing groups throughout the state where people can gather to discuss and workshop their writing.  We help connect writers across the state and provide opportunities to be part of a larger writing community as well as to work on the craft of writing.

Peninsula Writers Mission Statement

The mission of Peninsula Writers is to associate for the benefit of all writers seeking to improve their own work and willing to help others improve theirs in a supportive environment that values the writing process, individual discovery and growth.
