Help a writer emerge, create, publish

Your donation of $50 covers the cost of one writer's participation in Sarabande Writing Labs, an arts-education program serving under-resourced communities in Louisville, KY. See Sarabande Writing Labs homepage →

Our writers learn from the best! Weekly workshops are led by prominent local leaders, teachers, and artists. See our 2018 SWL teachers →

Our writers produce original works—poems and micro-essays—which are collected into handmade anthologies by volunteers. Each participant receives a copy of the published anthology. Additional copies are sold at local bookstores and on our website. See our 2014-2018 anthologies →

Our writers are invited to share their work at free community readings, on local radio, and through local print media. See media coverage for SWL →
