Who We Are

Michigan Writers is a community of writers, poets, editors, teachers, critics, readers, designers, booksellers — and everyone else who values the written word.

What We Do

We publish Dunes Review and the Michigan Writers Cooperative Press. We share what we know and invite experts to teach us what we don’t.

Will You Join Us?

Michigan Writers is a membership organization. We pool resources to do together what we can’t do alone. Above all, we encourage, connect and inspire ourselves and our writing community.
