About Us

Founded in 1975, the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance is a

membership-driven nonprofit organization that works to enrich the literary

life and culture of Maine. We are the only statewide organization solely

devoted to supporting and promoting Maine’s writers, publishers,

booksellers, and literary professionals. The MWPA has a membership of more

than 1,400.


Our goals include: promoting an appreciation of Maine literature; creating

a network of writers, readers, and publishers; creating opportunities for

writers to improve writing and marketing skills; and informing members and

the public of Maine literary and publishing news.


Throughout the year, the MWPA offers workshops and seminars at locations

across Maine, which includes two annual writing and craft retreats. We host

professional marketing events, such as PITCH, one-on-one sessions with

literary agents. In addition, the MWPA co-sponsors and facilitates literary

events across the state, such as the Belfast Poetry Festival and the Bangor

Book Festival.
