What we're about
Midwest Writers Association (http://midwestwriters.com) is an association of professional writers and non-fiction authors.
Members work across the media spectrum from magazines, newspapers, web-sites, bloggers and corporate publications to books, trade journals, film, speech writing and texts. Their specialties range from arts and entertainment, family, health, history, home, landscaping, real estate, travel and sports to medical, technical and business writing.
This meetup site is an outreach activity and available to facilitate attendance of our regularly scheduled meetings. Most meetings are open to prospective members and interested professionals as well as our general membership. Many meetings are held at Hackney's in Glenview but there are a number of other meetings that take place at various North Shore suburban and Chicago far northside locations .
Individuals who join the meetup site will receive announcements of upcoming meetings, will have the ability to RSVP here online and make advance payments via PayPal.
Dues paying members in good standing are eligible for discounted meeting fees as well as other member benefits. All MWA members are encouraged to register here. Non-association members are encouraged to submit a membership application and invited attend meetings designated as OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
