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.

Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Yan Lianke for Dream of Ding Village

Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Yan Lianke for Dream of Ding Village

Monday, Apr 19, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Presented in partnership with the UW Center for the Humanities as part of the 2020-2021 Great World Texts in Wisconsin program, Yan Lianke is a Chinese novelist frequently mentioned for the Nobel Prize for Literature; he’s often called the country’s most controversial writer. In this special virtual Humanities Without Boundaries talk, Yan will discuss his experiences researching and writing Dream of Ding Village, the prescient story of a public health crisis of the 1990s when rural villages selling their blood led to an AIDS outbreak. He will reflect on the novel’s perspective on pandemic profiteering, government corruption, as well as trauma and hope.
