Detroit Writers' Guild Knight Challenge Match

Want to join me in making a difference? In bringing people together? In supporting differently abled writers and musicians? In understanding what differently abled artists can teach us all? Well, then-What Ya Waiting For?? I'm raising money for The Detroit Writers'  Guild's All Access Cafe which just received a $27,000 matching grant from The Knight Foundation's Detroit Challenge Grant Program. To that end,  Detroit Writer's Guild, and any donation will help make impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

The Detroit Writers'  Guild's was recently awarded a $27,000 matching grant from The Knight Foundation to create and sustain for at least two years DWG's All Access Cafe. This  two year program that will feature both poets, writers and musicians offering a performances at Third Man Records in the Cass Corridor/Midtown/Wayne State area. Craft  talks and workshops by visiting authors and musicians will take place at The Detroit Public Libraries Main Branch visit.

The All Access Cafe was developed by M. L. Liebler to host differently abled artists from the US, Detroit and from around the world. The line up is currently being developed and will soon be posted. The first event, if we can match the Knight dollars, will be in late February.  The Knight Grant releases funds after matching dollars are raised. We can do these Detroit.  

The Detroit Writers' Guild is a 501C3 nonprofit eligible for tax write offs.  ALL contributions  large or small are appreciated and will help a great deal. To be part of an established (since 1983) and inclusive urban/suburban literary arts organization that serves all.
