Support a Writer, Change the World
Whether you dabble or dive in, writing generates change. New perspectives, deeper understandings, clarity: whatever is stuck – a situation, a life, a community – loosens up. Opens up.
Creativity in any form helps us grow. Helps others grow. Main Street Writers activities center on writing as a tool for change, and every day I see how receiving and holding a person’s story changes the lives of both the writer and the listener. If you’d like to help individuals, groups, and communities use their voices for change and growth, you’ve come to the right page.
Main Street Writers offers two ways to support writing and writers in the Valley:
The Tanya Fund is an endowment for adults who could not otherwise afford to participate in Main Street workshops and retreats. The greater the diversity among our writers, the richer the opportunities for learning and growth.
Community Outreach supports our literacy work with children who are learning and growing amidst of the challenges of poverty, learning a new language, and chronic cuts in education.
I hope you’ll take a minute to see what we’re doing with both of these funds, and consider helping us extend the opportunity to learn, grow and change through writing for children and adults in the Pioneer Valley.
