We’re writing to ask for your continued support and involvement in 2019. Whether you are a member of Lit Cleveland or a participant in one of our many programs for writers and readers, you are helping build a vibrant literary arts community in Northeast Ohio, and your increased participation is vital.
This year, we collaborated with Seeds of Literacy in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood to develop Cleveland Stories, an anthology of writing about the places we call home. We staged two performances of a reading at the Cleveland Humanities Festival featuring local writers on the theme of health. We launched and published two issues of the Gordon Square Review, a literary journal that shows off Cleveland to a worldwide audience. And in the midst of all that, Literary Cleveland put on a variety of free seminars and paid classes on topics from family history to public poetry, for writers at all levels of experience.
Did we mention the Inkubator? No? It’s Literary Cleveland’s signature annual event—five days of classes, seminars, discussions, and random meetings amid the density of Cleveland’s writing community. And it’s free to attend, too.
Don’t you want to be part of that? By joining Literary Cleveland today or renewing your annual membership, you help us do these wonderful things. Plus, you’ll get discounted rates on workshops and classes, and all new members who join before December 31 will receive three extra months of membership (through March 31, 2020).
If you are currently a member of Literary Cleveland, we hope you can also make an additional gift to make sure we can keep bringing and improving our programs for Northeast Ohio's literary community. Please make your gift today!
Thank you all for your continuing support of our mission.
To create a strong community of readers and writers in Cleveland, Ohio through workshops, classes, readings and other events.
