The Midwest Writing Center, now located in the Bucktown Center for the Arts in downtown Davenport, Iowa, has operated as a place of retreat for writers since 1973. The center, founded by Illinois writers David R. Collins and Evelyn Witter, serves a variety of different functions. It is a reception place for book signings and workshops and a meeting place for book clubs, writing groups and readings of both established and emerging writers. It also is a display area for local writing collections and a reference library with reference books and computers available for use, with a special project book publication. Since its establishment, the Midwest Writing Center has nurtured events including the annually-held Mississippi Valley Poetry Contest, Susan K. Collins Chapbook Contest, Great River Writers Retreat, Poetry Residency and Children’s Literature Festival.
