If you are in a giving mood on this Giving Tuesday, we hope you will give to the North Carolina Writersâ€™ Network.
After all, the Network has given a great deal to a great many writers in 2016:
Maybe you were one of the hundreds of writers who came to our Spring Conference in Greensboro, our Squire Summer Writing Residency in Charlotte, and/or our Fall Conference in Raleigh.
Maybe you used our Critiquing & Editing Service, or came to one (or more) of the monthly events hosted by our Regional and County Reps all over the state.
Maybe you took part in our beta online class last summer, or youâ€™ve signed up to take part in our official first-ever online class, coming up December 14.
Maybe you entered (or won!) one of our four annual writing contests. Maybe you plan to enter (and win!) one of them, or all of them, in the coming weeks.
Maybe youâ€™re one of the many writers who volunteered to take part in our new Prison Writers Outreach.
Maybe you found a writing class or critique group near you thanks to our weekly NC Literary Calendar e-blast, or answered a call to submission you found in our Opportunities e-blast, or listed your own events in our Member Readings e-blast.
The Network cannot continue to give so much to so many writers, though, unless you give us your support.
A gift in any amount will help us continue our support, education, promotion, and connection of writers at all levels of skill and experience, all across this state, and beyond. Your gift to the Network will help the Network remain as accessible as possible, to as many writers as possible, for as long as possible.
You can give to the Network using your VISA, MasterCard, or Discover through our online form (select “Giving Tuesday” from the dropdown menu), or by calling 336.293.8844 or 919.308.3228.
If you prefer to send us a check, please make it payable to the NC Writersâ€™ Network, and mail it to P.O. Box 21591, Winston-Salem, NC, 27120.
If you have interest in becoming a sponsor of one of our programs or services, or in advertising through the Network, please contact Charles Fiore at email@example.com to discuss the available opportunities.
If you ever have questions or comments about what the Network is doing, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you for your support of the North Carolina Writersâ€™ Network, and for helping to keep North Carolina the â€œWritingest State.â€
