MWPA’s GATHER encourages members (and their friends!) to meet and mingle with fellow members in one of several locations around Maine for casual camaraderie and conversation. There is no agenda to GATHER besides getting together with your community of fellow writers to talk writing, reading, and life.

 GATHER events are not (unless specifically stated by the venue host) open mic readings or occasions for attendees to read aloud from works-in-progress.

Upcoming GATHER dates

• Wednesday, September 14
• Wednesday, November 16

*If you are an MWPA member interested in hosting GATHER in your community, please email MWPA’s Hannah Perry at and include a couple suggestions for a venue in your area.
