ONLINE - Madison Writing Assistance

Saturday, Oct 3, 1:30pm to 4:30pm

The Madison Writing Assistance (MWA) program offers free, one-to-one writing support for community members, traditionally at libraries and neighborhood centers throughout the city, and now online. 

For the health and safety of our community, all MWA writing support will be offered remotely through the fall. Options for remote writing assistance include:

  • conversation over the phone
  • face-to-face conversation via Google Meet
  • written feedback via email

To make an appointment, please visit MWA's Appointment Center or call 608-315-5151.

MWA services are made possible through generous donations from the Evjue Foundation, the UW Anonymous Fund, and Altrusa International of Madison, along with administrative and program support from the UW-Madison English Department, the UW-Madison Writing Center, and our library and neighborhood center partners.
