How to become a Friend of MCWC

One powerful gift that our conference offers is the sense of belonging to a literary community, where participants support each other in a spirit of generosity, rather than competition. By becoming a Friend of MCWC, you can make a difference in building this community. Your gift will help:

  • Nurture the next generation of writers by funding our Under-25 scholarship. These are full-tuition scholarships offered to writers aged 16-25. These who may range from current high school students to those in MFA programs or talented writers with "real world" experience who yearn to write their stories

  • Encourage mature writers of limited means with a gift to our Open Scholarship program. This encourages writers from all walks of life, and diversifies the MCWC community.

  • Support publication of the Noyo River Review which offers monetary awards, editorial feedback and publication to winning writers attending the annual Mendocino Coast Writers Conference.
