Wordcrafters’ 5th Birthday Bash!
June 28 • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Five years ago, we began with a mission: to provide writers and readers opportunities to strengthen their craft, deepen their connection with literature, and share their knowledge with each other and with future generations.
And we haven’t done too shabby! So far:
• 2,725 adults have advanced their writing through classes, free workshops, retreats, four successful conferences, and other events.
• 4,116 young people have participated in our Writers in the Schools program, developing writing skills and a passion for the written word.
• 213 teaching/presenting opportunities were provided for both professional and emerging writers.
That’s quite a start for an organization operating on a shoestring budget: providing vibrant resources that could only come from an organization for writers and by writers.
We’re very proud! Of us, and of you! Come Celebrate! You bring a beverage, we’ll bring the cake!
Join us for a fundraiser party at the Shelton McMurphey Johnson House on June 28 from 6-8pm as we all celebrate our journey into the next five years.
