Established in June, 2012, MWA-Montgomery is one of several new MWA chapters. With over sixty writers on the chapter mailing list, our group includes newly fledged "closet writers" -- those who have just stepped out into public with their writing -- as well as single- and multi-book authors. 

MWA Montgomery meetings alternate between second Wednesday nights and first Saturday mornings.  Each meeting features a dynamic lecture or workshop on the craft of writing, marketing, publishing, or other topics of interest to the membership. Our speakers range from local to nationally recognized authors, editors, and book sellers.

In addition to presentations, we like to showcase our writers in many community events, from the Greenbelt Festival of Lights to the Gaithersburg Book Festival.
