Inspire Writers Center is a non-profit creative writing and literary center.
Our mission is to advance literary arts and culture by teaching creative writing classes and facilitating educational opportunities for our local Melbourne, FL community.
Our logo indicates our intended purpose, to inspire creative literary expression by illuminating the path to achieving one's individual writing goals. The radiating sun is an allusion to our home state of Florida, the Sunshine State.Our Background
Established in January 2022 by Malcom Massey, who also serves as Executive Director, Inspire Writers Center was founded as a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization based on similar established writing centers from around the country, including The Muse Writers Center in Norfolk, VA, The Writers Center in Bethesda, Maryland and ideas gathered at the 2018 AWP Conference Tampa Florida, along with many others. We have created original teaching concepts of our own while merged the best concepts from each of these sources. Our EIN is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
