Support Us Today
For more than 25 years, the Writers Grotto has been one of the Bay Area’s leading cultural institutions. Today, the Grotto offers invaluable support to writers and other narrative artists from a wide range of backgrounds, and who work across a wide range of genres, from poetry to journalism to film, novels, short fiction, memoir, and more. Our members have won some of the most prestigious awards—including Guggenheims, Emmys, Pushcarts, Pulitzers, and more—and their books can regularly be found on bestseller lists across the country and around the world.
But we need your help to provide the kind of support that puts these accomplishments within reach for our members—including those whose voices are too often marginalized by the publishing industry. Your tax-deductible contributions help fund Rooted & Written (our workshop series by and for writers of color), fellowships for emerging writers, our public readings and events, discounted fees for writers in financial straits, and programs like our weekly write-ins, which provide support and inspiration for the Bay Area literary community at all levels.
If you’d like to support our work, we accept tax-deductible donations through our fiscal sponsor, Independent Arts and Media. Just click the “Donate” button at the top of this page. Thank you for your support.
