Community Involvement

MWA sponsors activities that benefit the community and encourage the creative growth of Maryland's citizens. We are always open to new ideas and we welcome volunteers who wish to launch or help with community efforts. Current projects include:

  • Teen Writers' Clubs:  Since 2009, MWA volunteers have worked to encourage and mentor young writers through the Teen Writing Club program.  With 10 clubs and over 100 members, the program is growing rapidly.  MWA members, working closely with local libraries, MWA members provide a constructive, mentoring relationship for groups of 13-18 year olds who want to improve their writing skills. Most clubs operate in a workshop format so that teens can share their writing and get feedback from their peers. Leaders offer guidance and advice, writing exercises, and constructive criticism. For more information, contact Teen Club Coordinator Mark Willen at [email protected].

Donations go to support MWA's literacy programs.
