Dominican Writers Association is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit literary arts organization amplifying Dominican-American voices—and, in turn, creating a thriving community of creatives. We are committed to nurturing and promoting the works of Dominican writers, ensuring visibility and recognition in literary publishing.
Since its inception in 2015, DWA has strived to educate the community, celebrate Latinx culture, and foster literacy by providing the community with the necessary resources to develop their writing further—with writing workshops, book readings/book signings, book club meetings, book giveaways, an annual writer's conference and more!
Recognized by a community of writers who share their fervor for the written word, Dominican Writers Association stimulates enthusiasm for constant learning, development, evolution, and the implementation of shared knowledge.
DWA mentorship has nurtured, guided, and instilled self-confidence in its writers, many of whom have gone on to sign with literary agents, publish award-winning works, receive acceptance in prestigious residencies, and flourish in favor of their peers.
Dominican Writers fosters a culture of literary growth, artistic expression, and authorship, enabling Dominican creatives to articulate their vision and, in turn, change the publishing landscape.
