CWAM is the only formal not-for-profit organisation in Malta giving a voice to Malta’s creative writing industry. Our purpose is to act as the representative of professional creative writers in Malta, promoting an understanding of the creative writing industry on the economic, educational, cultural, and social levels. As well, we aim to promote communication between authorities, industries, and other organisations in relation to the creative writing industry.
To that end, our mission can be summed up in three main points:
- To establish professional standards and legal rights for creative writers who work in Malta, no matter their sector.
- To promote creative writing as a profession within its own right, and foster community among industry professionals, emerging writers, and the public.
- To provide opportunities for continuing professional training and education for established and aspiring creative writers in Malta.
