Mud Season Review is staffed entirely by volunteer members of the Burlington Writers Workshop (BWW), a free writing workshop for all Vermonters. Founded in 2009 by Peter Biello, the BWW has drawn more than 600 members, nearly half of whom are actively attending workshops at any given time. The BWW’s mission is to provide writers with free learning opportunities that help them develop as artists and professional writers.
If you live in Vermont and want to be involved with the ongoing creation of Mud Season Review, attend a workshop and offer feedback on your fellow Vermonters’ stories, novels, poems, memoirs, plays, screenplays and songs.
By joining the BWW you can benefit from:
- as many as five workshops spanning several genres each week in Burlington, with additional workshops in Montpelier and Middlebury
- publishing opportunities in Cold Lake Anthology—the BWW’s annual print anthology that features work written, selected, and edited by Vermont writers—and other venues
- public readings, workshops, and panel discussions with celebrated authors such as Megan Mayhew Bergman, Jensen Beach, Jon Clinch, and Kerrin McCadden
- a community writing space where writers can come to work and share in a quiet and welcoming environment
