Giving Tuesday

On this #GivingTuesday, the North Carolina Writers’ Network welcomes and appreciates any donation, in any amount, that any lover of literature sees fit to give. All you have to do is visit our website,, and click on the “Nobody Writes Alone” banner below our logo.

The Network, however, is doing fine. Our membership is strong, diverse, and active; our Fall Conference was energized and well-attended; Contest Season is underway; and registration for the first of our Winter Series of online workshops, “Micropoetry: The Ritual of Chiseling Words!” with Crystal Simone Smith, is already ahead of projections.

So, on this #GivingTuesday, in this year with such needs, we urge you NOT to give to the Network. We urge you to give elsewhere: a local food bank, a literacy initiative, a relief agency helping those affected by this Fall’s many natural disasters, a program supporting the homeless or veterans or one of the many other segments of Americans who need your help even more than us poor, high-strung writers.

Thank you for all your support of the Network, whether as members, donors, or both. We look forward to serving writers more—and to serving more writers—in the coming year.
