The Writing Center is a hub for writing throughout the university, and we make it a priority to emphasize the fun aspects of writing through our special events, campus writing group, and literary blog. 

Special Events

The Writing Center hosts special events throughout the year, often collaborating with other departments on campus to engage students in activities focused on writing, creativity, and research. Check out Presence for the latest updates!

Madonna Pen

The Madonna Pen is a campus writing group that meets once a month either virtually or in the Writing Center. Writers gather to share what they have been working on, discuss their ideas, and develop new projects. The Madonna Pen also hosts events for students, such as the "Write Your Heart Out" Valentine's Day writing workshop. If you would like to join the mailing list and find out more about getting involved with the Madonna Pen, email madonna.pen@my.madonna.edu.

MU Voices

MU Voices is Madonna's literary blog, and we welcome submissions from all students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The blog includes poetry, essays, fiction, creative non-fiction, prayers, song lyrics, photographs, scanned artwork, and videos. To submit your original work, send an email to madonna.pen@my.madonna.edu with "MU Voices Submission" in the subject line.
