I hope this finds you safe and well as we prepare to turn the page on 2022. We’ve been fortunate to have a terrific year at MWC—from our partnership with WVIK to bring our These Interesting Times anthology into podcast form, to welcoming Ross Gay as our Writers’ Conference keynote speaker, it’s been an exciting year of celebrating the power of the written word. As I reflect and look forward, I’ve been thinking about two people very dear to MWC, both important to our history, who also made lasting contributions that will continue into the future—one of them a writer, and one of them an advocate: Richard “Dick” Stahl and Rochelle Murray.
We recently received a $5,000 grant to match all funds received between December 1 through January 15, 2021, so your contribution will go twice as far. Any donation $25 or more will receive a one-year MWC membership or renewal, donations of $50 or more will receive an MWC Press publication of your choice, and all donations up to $300 are eligible for the CARES Act tax deduction on top of the standard deduction for 2020 (for donations made on or before 12/31/20).
