The 2017 Fundraiser has begun!

Hello friends! Fundraiser time is upon us again and we need your assistance to help us grow in 2017!

Now entering our second year, Broadleaf Writers is looking for the resources to secure office space, technology and supplies that will aid in our educational efforts, and the resources to fund our operation as we build toward future goals. With every dollar pledged, we gain a greater opportunity to teach the craft of writing to those looking to improve a skill they may use in both their personal and professional lives!

Any amount helps! Whether $10, $20 or more, every dollar will help us accomplish our goals of assisting individuals in their attempts to learn the craft!

We want to offer what we can in return for your generosity, and have therefore created the following levels:

With any donation of $50 or more, you will instantly receive an annual membership into Broadleaf Writers (a $40 value), and be listed as a donor on our website and in our Annual Conference Program! For a list of membership benefits, please visit our membership page.

With any donation of $100 or more, you will receive a membership, donation listing, and a critique on the first ten pages of your manuscript by one of our Conference speakers!

With any donation of $250 or more, you will receive a membership into Broadleaf Writers, you will be listed as a Sponsor of our organization or conference (your choice!), receive a ten page critique on your manuscript, AND you will be invited to all 2017 conference functions as our guest!

With any donation of $500 or more, you will receive a lifetime membership into Broadleaf Writers, invitations to future private and public functions and the opportunity to join us in an advisory capacity, as well as everything else in the above groups!

In addition to helping our educational organization grow, all donations are tax-deductible!

Thank you and we appreciate your time and attention!

Featured Partner: The Writer’s High

The Writers HighOne of the fundamental tenets of the Broadleaf Writers Association is that through community, writers gain not only in talent but in strength and confidence. As a unit, we can achieve more, we can assist one another in the dreams birthed the first day we created worlds. Our region is deep in organizations dedicated to writers, and we believe it is necessary to partner with and promote them all. The broader the community, the greater we can assist our writers. So, today we launch a feature promoting each of our partners. Please, follow the links, see what these groups are doing. Perhaps they speak to you. Perhaps they speak to a writer you know. Perhaps you will share the word, help us in our efforts to build the biggest, most diverse community of writers in existence.

Today, we spotlight The Writer’s High, a fantastic writer’s retreat, run by the incomparable (and super awesome!) Mari Ann Stefanelli Perusek.

Picture yourself nestled in the gorgeous North Georgia mountains, with cool breezes caressing your summer-weary skin, lodging in a beautiful resort, doing what you love––writing, refilling your creative well. Tantalizing, isn’t it? Now, add in a NYT best-selling author, two award-winning authors, and an extraordinary poet who share their writing secrets with you. Can you imagine? They’re with you ALL weekend. You’ll attend their workshops, eat delicious meals together, and enjoy relaxed conversations. Can you see yourself? Now, add in a sprinkling of fellow writers from all levels and backgrounds who are eager to learn, to experience, and to meet other writers. Your newest best friend might be the writer sitting next to you. It’s all at The Writer’s High Retreat, waiting for you. No competition. No comparisons. You need this. Your writing deserves this. Registration has been extended to September 1st. http://www.thewritershighretreat.com/

Featuring Joshilyn Jackson, Charles Clifford Brooks III, Jessica Handler, and Michael Morris, this retreat should be at the top of every writer’s wish list. Register now!
