One moment please...
Connect and Write with the DWC

The Driftless Writing Center is offering online drop-in sessions twice a week through the end of March 2021. We meet on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Central Time and Saturdays at 9 a.m. Central Time. We will log into Zoom together, check in on our goals for the session, then get to work in two 25-minute blocks of focused writing time.

Write-In Wednesdays and Saturdays are open to all writers anywhere, working in any genre. You can join us for one session per week or both, and drop in throughout the season as your schedule allows. 

These Write-In Wednesdays and Saturdays are shorter and more casual than the virtual get-togethers that we offered for National Novel Writing Month: no craft talks, just two writing sprints and the opportunity to connect with your fellow writers, all within an hour.

After you've registered, you will receive the Zoom link. While there is no fee to register, donations (see our Donate page) to the Driftless Writing Center are encouraged. Your donations help us provide scholarships for DWC workshops and classes, and support our efforts to build writing community in the Driftless region.


Instructors: Jennifer Morales and Lisa Henner

When: Wednesdays though March 21 and Saturdays through March 27

Where: Online via Zoom

Cost: Free, but donations to the DWC encouraged (see our Donate page)

Cancellation Policy

DWC Cancellations


In case of inclement weather, DWC will follow the Viroqua Public School district’s cancellation notices. If the Viroqua Public School district cancels classes for the day, DWC will cancel any program scheduled for that day. If the Viroqua Public School district announces a two-hour delay, a DWC program scheduled for that evening may still be held, subject to the host’s determination. For programs scheduled on weekends, the DWC program host will decide and notify enrolled students no later than 8 a.m. on the day of the program.

Extenuating Circumstances

DWC will make every attempt to hold a scheduled program but reserves the right to cancel a program for any reason (e.g., illness, family emergency, or insufficient enrollment). 


DWC will notify enrolled students via email and post a notice on social media or its Web site as soon as a cancellation decision is made. 


DWC will make every attempt to reschedule a canceled program. Information about the rescheduled program will be sent to enrolled students via email and announced on social media or DWC’s Web site.


If DWC cancels a program and it is not rescheduled, DWC will issue full refunds for students’ pre-paid program fees. If a student cannot attend on a rescheduled date, DWC will refund that student’s pre-paid program fee. DWC cannot be responsible for travel, lodging, or other costs prospective students incur.

Student Cancellations

DWC expects a student enrolled in a program to notify us as soon as s/he knows s/he cannot attend. DWC will refund 100% of pre-paid program fees until five days before the program begins. For student cancellations occurring between one and five days before the program begins, the DWC program host and DWC board will determine whether or to what extent a student’s pre-paid program fee may be refunded. No pre-paid fees will be refunded within 24 hours of the program’s start or after a program starts.
