The Mid-Valley chapter serves the needs of those members of the Willamette Writers who live in
the central regions of Oregon. We provide a local forum for writers to build their craft, learn
elements of promotion, and interact with the literary community across the Northwest. Providing
a series of speakers, workshops, and a sense of community with your fellow writers, we work to
bring you the full benefits of the Willamette Writers.
