Writers Night Out is 10 years old! Help celebrate this literary birthday during the May 3 WHO by participating in our annual fundraiser for Straw Dog Writers Guild
Our goal is $25,000 from March 15 through June 7, 2022. In 2020, we raised $22,000 and at the urging of friends and supporters, we increased our goal.
We founded WNO as a way for all writers to meet, make new friends, support each other, share our writing, and hear the recent work of a local, published author. The pandemic has been hard on everyone and it kept us physically apart, but we have flourished on Zoom. Getting back together again is our highest priority and we will soon share news about our June WNO that will be in person! Stay tuned.
There are several ways we can reach our $25,000 goal:
- Watch the Straw Dog newsletter, website and other social media for photos and messages from fellow writers on how Straw Dog has made a difference for them.
- Join us live from 6:30-6:55 p.m. on May 3 for “Wine and Chocolate with the Founders and MCs of WNO.” (You’ll have to bring your own wine and chocolate). Register HERE.
- Stay for the Writers Night In Open Mic with Featured Reader Rebecca Olander. If you want an opportunity to read, register HERE.
- Make your donation a gift to a friend or yourself. You can also donate a membership to someone to Straw Dog for only $50.
- Donate anytime for any reason HERE. And if you prefer to write us a check you can. Make check payable to: Straw Dog Writers Guild Mail to: 43 Fairview Ave., Northampton, MA 01060 memo line: WNO Fundraiser
- But you don’t have to wait until May 3rd. Donate now HERE and it will count toward our goal.
- Help us spread the word about Straw Dog Writers Guild and WNO. Share this newsletter and, when photos and quotes from Straw Dog writers pop up on Facebook or Instagram, be sure to like and share them.
