Every gift to MVICW is a direct contribution to

expanding literature and the arts in our communities.

Through the generosity of organizations and individuals like you, we are able to provide hundreds of fellowships to educators, parent-writers, writers of color, queer writers, and emerging poets and authors. And thanks to your donations, our recipients have gone on to publish award-winning novels, memoirs, and poetry collections.


You can make a donation by clicking on the link below. Your donation is tax-deductible, and every dollar goes directly to supporting an emerging writer.


Individuals wishing to establish new fellowships in their name can sponsor a full fellowship by donating in the amount of $1700 per fellowship to the Benefactor Fellowship below. 

Thank you for your support!

All donations suport our ongoing fellowship opportunities as they are needed. You may also donate to a specific fellowship, by choosing one of the options below.

This was truly one of the best writing conferences I've ever attended—a perfect balance of creative rigor and creative leisure. The feeling of fellowship among faculty and students was infectious, electric even.
