Lakes Area Writers Alliance

The Lakes Area Writers Alliance (LAWA) is a community literature arts non-profit organization that works to inspire, enrich and educate writers. Made up of an alliance of writers in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Minnesota, we believe in writers helping writers. We are continually striving for creative ideas to implement when thinking about what writers need, most of all, in their writing lives.

Our Mission

The Lakes Area Writers Alliance’s mission is to foster writers’ professional development, promote communication, and build skills throughout the literary community. Our goal is to create an environment in which the broadest possible public can appreciate literature.

We embrace diversity
