Donate $35 to Our Community Scholarship Fund
Support Writing Workshops in this Uncertain Time
In this extraordinary time, many of you have asked how you can help Writing Workshops. Now, more than ever, we need your support.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 in community support and we are looking for 300 people to donate $35 (or more) to reach our goal.
Many literary organizations have been affected by the global pandemic, and Writing Workshops is no different. For the first time since we launched in March 2017, we are asking for community support.
With your generous donation, we’ll keep Writing Workshops going and meet community needs.
Your donation of $35 (or more) will support teaching artists, provide vital scholarships for low-income students, and allow us to continue creating community programming such as LitTalk, The Big Texas Read, and provide Free College Prep for low-income high school students this fall.
In just three short years we've been home to over 2,500 writers. Our excellent programs have been featured in Poets&Writers, Book Riot, Forbes, The Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, D Magazine, KERA Art&Seek, and elsewhere.
Your donation right now will help us.
We are living in an unprecedented time but our mission remains the same. The challenges we face as a literary organization are real. We lost significant income from class tuition as we transitioned from in-person to online classes at the start of the pandemic. Many of our students have faced layoffs, reduced wages, and therefore cannot sign up for classes that they otherwise would have taken.
Many of our instructors are also fighting economic hardship. Income they rely on outside of Writing Workshops is less available, so income from the classes they teach with us is more important than ever. Last year we paid our teaching artists $175,000; this is money they rely on to meet their financial obligations.
And now we need your help.
If you can't give, but still want to support our cause, please share our page via social media. With more people aware of our cause, we'll be one step closer to reaching our goal.
Thank you for your support during these challenging times.
Please note that we are not yet a nonprofit organization and your donation at this time is not tax deductible. If you have questions please let us know.
