Writers in Residence is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization incorporated in Ohio.
We ask that you please consider donating because your financial contribution will sustain our ability to teach creative writing to youth who are incarcerated to empower their voices and assist in their re-entry into society. Your donation will allow us to:
- Purchase programmatic materials (i.e. writing materials, technology, personal protective equipment (PPE), snacks, and chapbooks) for our creative writing workshops.
- Compensate special guest authors to lead one or more of our creative writing workshops with an honorarium.
- Assist our residents who are re-entering society with very little or zero access to social services and resources to prevent them from recidivating.
- Educate our local communities and government officials about the juvenile justice system’s traumatic effect on our youth.
“To help me articulate in writing. We have met those expectations.”– A Resident at Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile Correction Facility
