WHY BECOME A WRITING FOR PEACE CHAPTER MEMBER?
NOURISH YOUR OWN WRITING PRACTICE.
Whether you are a seasoned writer or new to the life of letters, regardless of training or background, being a member of your regional chapter of Writing for Peace provides access to a community of other writers, who are committed both to the writing life, and to the mission of Writing for Peace. Membership offers a wide variety of experiences to feed both the literary and citizen soul, as well as opportunity to develop and contribute to projects promoting local writers and writing.
USE YOUR TALENTS & PASSIONS FOR THE GREATER GOOD AT THE LOCAL LEVEL
Membership in a chapter of Writing for Peace allows you to nourish and develop your own literary and community citizenship, and that of your home area. The health of any community or region depends largely in part to the spirit of creativity that thrives in the area; the literary arts are a unique and important part of this creative energy. By becoming a member of a chapter of Writing for Peace, you support not only the chapter's mission to foster the development of writers and literary citizens, but in essence, you participate and contribute in a very real way to the creative culture of your home area.
SUPPORT CREATIVE WRITING OUTREACH IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY & REGION
By becoming a member of your local chapter of Writing for Peace, you support outreach initiatives across your region, both those of the chapter itself, and those of other local organizations to which the chapter extends its support. Whether to advance literacy through creative writing or to utilize writing initiatives as a means toward self-expression, self-reflection, storytelling, activism, and social justice, Writing for Peace has much to offer not only its writers, but to our communities as a whole.
