Your Gift Builds Community graphic“I learned that writing is not something you can do all at once or all alone,” wrote one of the attendees at this year’s conference. Those words embody what JRW is all about. We exist to support writers through educational programming, inspirational events, and opportunities to come together as a community. And we need your help.

Why should you participate in the annual fund? Because we can’t support everything we do (or want to do) through ticket fees alone. We rely on you to help us bring amazing literary events to the RVA community. Your donation means fewer writers figuring things out all alone.

Why should you give now? So much of our planning and booking happens early in the year, and a strong annual fund sets us up for a strong year. If you like having access to literary superstars, you can impact our decisions about 2018 by making a gift now. Also, from a purely practical perspective, giving a larger gift in 2017 may help you reach a higher standard deduction threshold if the tax bill passes.

Please help us meet our annual fund goal of $5,000. Just click on the button below to give now.
