In 1991, three writers [who were also educated professionals] formed I.A.W.A.: The Italian-American Writers Association. The group's motto is: "Read each other!" In the last few years, not only has I.A.W.A. grown, but also "Young I.A.W.A." was formed to nurture literary persons under age 25.
"IAWA aims to promote Italian American literature by encouraging the writing, reading, publication, distribution, translation, and study of Italian American writing."
