“The printing press has made presidents, killed poets, furnished bustles for beauties and polished genius with criticism. It has made worlds get up at roll call every morning, given the pulpit lungs of iron and a voice of steam. It has set the price on a bushel of wheat and made the country postoffice the glimmering goal of the rural scribe.”
From the pages of The Beacon, March 16, 1889

It’s as true today as it was 125 years ago: words in print have power. And whether they come to us between the covers of a book, squeezed into a newspaper column, or etched in cyberspace, the words we see in print have been selected, sculpted, and polished by passionate writers determined to make a difference. The annual Mendocino Coast Writers Conference provides guidance and support for writers who want to sharpen their skills and increase their reach. Our MCWC blog is yet another place where writers can find encouragement, expertise, and inspiration. We invite you to visit often as a way to get to know our community and become part of it.
