Mission Statement

The Coalition for Community Writing (CCW) is an international organization of scholars, writers, educators, students, activists, and community organizers, which provides resources, consultation, and partnership to its members in order to foster successful community writing initiatives. CCW supports community writing through research and publication, pedagogy, creative works, direct programming, project sponsorship, and relationship building.

Vision Statement

The Coalition for Community Writing (CCW) supports writing as a mindful, creative, and social practice, forged in community partnerships, to promote socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable communities.  We are reimagining how communities write themselves; how writing is used as a tool for public awareness and expression, dialogue across difference, and community building; and how higher education and communities can collaborate toward these ends.
