We are a nonprofit literary organization based in Springfield

, Illinois, home of our 16th U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. We are prou

d to serve central Illinois and have been doing so since 1993.

Our goal is to inspire and support the literary arts.

For the past fifteen years, our annual teen poetry anthology, Navigating the Mazehas reached teens, their families and friends, and others around the world.

New! The Sangamon Watercolor Society (SWS) and SPW are collaborating on another wonderful Poets and Painters event.

See the Poets & Painters 2016 page for details -- and hurry! Your writings must be completed by October 10!
