Mission Statement

The mission of MWS has remained constant throughout its 28-year history: to promote literature and literacy in the Northwest by providing Quality events that are accessible to all segments of the community.

Description

MWS provides quality literary programming through 6 distinct programs: Campus Readings at area colleges and universities Community Residencies which involve our visiting writers in a number of activities, including readings, lectures, and writing workshops Youth Programs at area high schools Northwest Regional Residencies are similar to our community residencies, but they are for a longer amount of time, and the writer visits communities outside of the greater Portland area Special Events honor, in one-night only programs, notable literary figures Workshops in all aspects of creative writing are taught by Oregon writers We also act as a clearinghouse with other area literary sponsors to plan itineraries for visiting writers. Our center has a library and resource center, which are both open to the public.
