Donate to Pioneer Valley Writers' Workshop / Create a Scholarship / Custom Gift Certificate
Donations: We are a small, writer-run organization that does not have any outside resources or grants to draw on, and it's important to us to uphold the accessibility of our writing workshops to all writers. Because of this, we greatly appreciate any contributions you're able to provide, which go directly toward sustaining our free Community Writing sessions, providing aid and scholarships to writers struggling financially, and supporting the daily administration of PVWW. If you've recently attended a Community Writing event and have the means to do so, a $10 - $20 donation would greatly help us sustain PVWW and continue these free and low-cost community offerings. Any and all donations greatly appreciated!
Note: To increase donation amount, increase the "Quantity" number.
Custom Gift Certificate: To purchase a custom gift certificate for an amount above $60, increase the donation amount ("price") above to the amount desired. It may be helpful to know the cost of our multi-week workshops (listed below) too. Tell us in the comments section (when you check out) that this is a "Gift Certificate" and to whom/where you'd like us to send the physical certificate.
Create a Scholarship: We would love to offer more full and partial scholarships to our workshops for writers in need, though to ensure that each class still earns what it needs to in order for us to pay our instructors what their time and talent deserve, we are hoping to fund more scholarships through community support and donation. To create a scholarship, increase the above donation ("price") amount to the amount required for the scholarship you'd like to create (or a partial amount). Tell us in the comments section (when you checkout) that you'd like to "Create a scholarship," and we'll be in touch to finalize the name of your scholarship, who you'd like it to be for (for example: emerging writers, BIPOC writers, women poets, all writers in financial need, etc.) and if you'd like it to be applied to a specific genre or workshop.
