Cortland Writers' Association (CWA)

The Cortland Writers Association (CWA) is a student-run group that promotes creative and professional writing on campus and within the Cortland community. Every semester, CWA aims to produce a magazine that showcases student writing in a wide variety of genres and forms. 

In addition to the production of our biannual magazine, we also hold many literacy/writing-centered events, such as our annual Halloween Reading, book drives/raffles, and a biannual writing retreat held at Huntington Memorial Camp at William H. Parks Family Center for Environmental and Outdoor Education at Raquette Lake, NY. 

CWA is an entity of the English Department and the Professional Writing Program, but students of all majors/minors/concentrations are encouraged to join and participate. CWA club members develop their own creativity in our meetings by participating in writing exercises, through workshops and by playing around with word games and other fun activities.
