|\Mississippi Writers Guild ("MWG" or "The Guild") is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit Mississippi
Corporation. Incorporated November 2005, MWG has steadily worked towards building its
membership and community involvement in the arts and education within Mississippi.
One of MWG's goals is forming chapters throughout Mississippi with a chapter head
spearheading each group according to the needs of the writers in that area. Chapters meet
regularly to network with other writers, share writing experiences, tips, ideas, readings, open
mic sessions, and critique groups. Chapters also discuss and plan special programs and
workshops for their area. Smaller events can usually be handled by the chapter, but if larger
events are sought for an area, such as a book festival or writer retreat with a well-known
author, the MWG board helps to implement the program or event and assists in the
advertising, funding, etc., to insure a successful event.
Annual membership dues allow MWG Members to link from the MWG website to their
personal website. Dues also allow membership discounts on all MWG events in addition to
the above stated benefits. MWG contributes a portion of the membership funds to individual
chapters to promote MWG and to implement programs, events, and workshops all over the
state. MWG members may also email questions related to writing to MWG contact people,
as well as email news and updates on their writing successes to be announced to the MWG
list and in the quarterly newsletter. More importantly, member dues help finance MWG
programs and events, as well provided scholarships to students pursuing a career in a literary
