Who We Are
The Driftless Writing Center, Inc., is a volunteer-led nonprofit organization based in Viroqua, WI, that provides literary and educational opportunities, readings and discussions, writing classes and workshops, and an outlet for the presentation of original writing by area writers.
Anyone who supports the literary arts can participate, and we operate in a spirit of cooperation and recognize that each individual's contribution is valuable. We endeavor to create a supportive and noncompetitive environment while celebrating excellence in writing.
