Why I Give to the BWW

Because I want your opinion – and yours – and yours – of my writing. Because I want to read what you’re writing, think about what you’re trying to accomplish, and talk with others about ways to achieve that. Because I want to learn how to string words together so they make you laugh, make you cry, make you wonder.

That’s why I give to the BWW.

Its challenging and supportive workshops. The community of writers who quilt a larger world – more opinions, experiences, and knowledge – than the microcosm in my skull alone.

That’s why I give to BWW.

The generous and deeply thoughtful professional writers who come to sit at our table and share their thoughts about the craft of writing, and the art. Writers who inspire us. The retreats that eject us out of our routines and totally immerse us in a writing world for a day.

Because it gives so much to me. That’s why I give to the Burlington Writers Workshop.
