Sarabande Writing Labs 2018 Collection

Having just ended its fifth season in 2018 Sarabande Writing Labs has partnered with organizations serving people living with displacement, homelessness, addiction, disability, and mental illness. With your support we have been able to host 87 free writing workshops, create 14 hand-bound anthologies, and published 194 local writers. With your continued support we can only continue growing the program from here. Your tax-deductible donation of $50 covers the cost of one writer's participation in Sarabande Writing Labs.
