$10. 10 days. Countless voices heard.

It’s our 10th anniversary, and by now, we really know how to stretch a dollar. Imagine what we could do with ten of them. Ten dollars puts pens and notebooks into the hands of writers as young as six years old. Ten dollars buys two workshop participants round-trip MetroCards for NYWC reading events. Every $10 donation helps make a writing workshop happen for homeless, incarcerated, or disabled individuals on every day of the week. Help us ensure countless voices continue to be heard.

Join us for 10 Days of NYWC, October 22-31, featuring events, readings, Trivia Night, and much more. With your help, we’ll also raise as many $10 donations as possible, and you will have a shot at some great prizes! If we raise $10,000 or more during the 10 Days of NYWC, every dollar raised will be matched by an anonymous family foundation donor that has given us a challenge grant, so please help us exceed this goal to turn $10,000 into $20,000 or more!

If you can raise one donation ($10), that’s great! If your goal is 100 donations ($1,000), that’s awesome! Every donation counts, and you can participate in a few ways.
