Madelon is a founding member of the Prairie Quills Writers’ Group. She served as President for nine years. The mandate of the group is to support its members to write, publish and read at events; and enable other writers in the community. The group produces an anthology every second year. Fifty percent of the profits from the anthology go toward providing writing workshops and programs for young writers. The group established Listening Circle at the local library, mentored a public school writing program, read monthly at the senior centres and celebrate each year with a Gala event at the library.

She appreciates the support services they offer online, from workshops, writing markets, and info on members; as well as the monthly Freelance offering information on events, new publications by members and articles on writing.

Madelon takes great pleasure from enabling other writers to reach their writing goals. Several of the projects she helped with are below and available through the links.
