Dear MVICW Community,

As we head into our 12th year, we are looking forward to the 2021 Martha’s Vineyard Writers’ Conference! We remain hopeful that by June it will be safe for us to travel and celebrate together as a writing community, and our hope is that the coming months will bring good news which will make our time together a safe return.


We are planning carefully as we keep watch on local, state, and federal health updates, so that we can make a full determination of how to proceed for this summer’s conference. As we move into our fellowship application season, we are working on our normal conference planning while also developing a robust digital option should summer 2021 remain unsafe for travel. We will come together as a community, whether in person or online, to celebrate the power of our creativity together. We are optimistic that this reunion will be in person, but we will base our decisions on science and our commitment to keeping all of our community members safe.


We look forward to celebrating together with you this summer, and we wish you all the best with your writing in the coming months! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Alexander Weinstein
