How you can help

The Community Writing Center (CWC) supports, motivates and educates people of all abilities and educational backgrounds who want to use writing for practical needs, civic engagement, and personal expression. Our programs offer skill development, creative outlets, practical application and supportive writing environments. We also partner with community and governmental agencies and businesses to empower their clients, staff and volunteers.

Many of the CWC’s programs are supported by donations and volunteers. Salt Lake area adults are encouraged to volunteer their time and support the CWC through a financial donation.


Are you interested in coaching writers? Have you considered mentoring a writing group? Or do you simply want to help the CWC any way you can? We have a number of opportunities for you to help—from one day events to weekly coaching sessions, there is something for everyone.

If you are interested in becoming a CWC Volunteer, please attend an upcoming Volunteer Orientation, fill out our Volunteer Application, or contact us at

Volunteer Orientation will be held on:

1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 6-7 p.m.


Your donation to the Community Writing Center will help to support our innovative programs and to promote the belief that everyone can write.
