Mission Statement

CIWA welcomes all writers, beginners and seasoned.

The mission of Central Indiana Writers’ Association (CIWA) is to support and encourage writers, on all levels and most genres, in their efforts to develop and share their work.
We are an established group of writers with a mission to continue to serve the writing community. Visit our site often for new information. We are working hard to make this the website you keep returning to for your writing goals.
Each year, we ask our members to give us ideas of what programs they would find beneficial in the New Year. We elect a set of officers each year who lead us through our meetings and guide our footsteps during the year. Sometimes a member will be in charge of the meeting, and other times will find an outsider sharing their expertise. This format gives us a diversified schedule while generating enthusiasm and interest. We have open reading, or possibly roundtable discussions, but we are sure you won’t be bored.
We offer a wide variety of writing opportunities and programs, including speakers, readings, and writing exercises, to assist our members in developing their craft through such information.
