THE STORY:

As a writer, I believe everyone has a story to be told and to be heard no matter what her or his background. Often, writing can be a powerful tool for self discovery and healing.

The New York Writers Coalition is one of the largest community writing organizations in the country. The NYWC provides free, unique and powerful creative writing workshops throughout New York City for people from groups that have been historically deprived of voice in our society including at-risk and disconnected youth, the homeless and formerly homeless, the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated, war veterans, people with disabilities, cancer and major illness, immigrants, seniors and others. Your donation is helping these individuals heal and grow through the writing process while ensuring that their stories do not go unheard.

Each year the NYWC hosts a Write-A-Thon to raise funds. I've been fortunate to participate in this all-day event for the past couple of years. It's a great way to dedicate an entire day to writing, network with other writers within the NY metropolitan area, benefit from prompts and workshops throughout the day, and help the NYWC raise funds to create opportunities for formerly voiceless members of society to be heard through the art of writing.

Please consider supporting the NYWC's efforts today.

Thanks so much,
Jennifer
