Editorial Focus

MWC Press is the publishing imprint of the Midwest Writing Center, a 501(c)(3) literary arts non-profit. All sales from MWC Press go back into our programs and toward future publishing opportunities. 

Tips From the Editor

The MWC Press publishes The Atlas, a literary magazine produced by the Young Emerging Writers Summer Internship Program each year; special project books by local and regional authors on a rolling basis, which are usually selected from pitches during the David R. Collins Writers’ Conference; and, starting in 2021, poetry chapbooks as part of the Foster-Stahl Chapbook Series.
