Fostering appreciation of the written word, supporting and educating its creators.
The Midwest Writing Center was founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1980, by Illinois writers David R. Collins and Evelyn Witter. The Midwest Writing Center is managed by a 15-member Board of Directors; we hold an annual meeting in May of each year for our membership; our annual report is distributed at the annual meeting. Our current Executive Director is Ryan Collins. We have over 100 volunteers who contribute over 4,500 hours of service each year in the areas of fundraising, program development, office maintenance, web design, administrative assistance, and much more.
