Information about MWSA.

Review/Award Criteria

MWSA is a writing group designed to encourage active military, veterans, their families, and historians to write. Our focus is on the stories themselves. Our goal is to create a body of work that will support historians in the future. To that end, we recognize the efforts of our members—whether they are professional writers or beginners or those who simply want a legacy for their families—using the same standards for all.

Membership FAQ

Who can join MWSA?

Membership in MWSA is generally reserved for active duty military, retirees, or military veterans and their families. We also offer memberships to non-military personnel whose work includes military themes. While most members are authors, some are poets, performers and artists with the same military focus.

You can use a business/group name when registering provided you also provide a persons name as contact as well.
