Thank You!

Over 2 million people are incarcerated in the U.S. with little access to quality arts or educational programming. Your gifts allow us to bridge that gap.

MPWW is a lot of things: an arts organization, a group of educators, a bridge between writers inside and outside of prison. More than anything, it's a community. We're so grateful you're a part of it. Thank you.



Thank you for your interest in getting involved with MPWW.

We are not looking for new instructors at this time. However, if you have experience teaching creative writing in academic or community settings and are interested in teaching with MPWW, you may contact us and introduce yourself in case a teaching opportunity becomes available in the future.

We are always looking for volunteers to serve as mentors through our Mentor Program. Mentors typically have advanced degrees in creative writing and/or a significant publication record. We do occasionally make exceptions for writers who are currently enrolled in MFA programs or have experience teaching or mentoring in creative writing or literacy. If you have these qualifications, please contact us to apply! Mentors do not need to reside in Minnesota and have the option of remaining anonymous.

Our other volunteer needs include photography/videography, graphic design, grantwriting, and general administration. If you'd like to help out in one or more of those areas, please contact us to discuss our present needs.
