Support a Woman Writer: Donate to Our Summer Conference Scholarship Fund

Many of us found our way to something life-changing because someone believed in us enough to expend time, energy, or money to make it happen. And don’t we always feel richer when we pay it forward?

Every year, The Guild is able to cover full or partial summer-conference registration fees for women writers who just know they have to be there but don’t have the financial resources.

Please help us serve more of these dedicated, deserving women by making a tax-deductible donation here.
