Offering a Hand Up for Someone Willing to Climb

Helping HandWe are grateful to each Sponsor who financially supports the work we do here at Writers Inner Circle. Writers have long been the voice of new ideas, social justice, entertainment, and freedom. They make us laugh or cry,  but most importantly writers help us reconsider life itself. To that end, the heart of our mission at WIC is to provide a safe, affordable community for all writers, regardless of their writing experience. Each Sponsor’s generous support helps ensure a path for members so they are able to find their way from first word to publication … if that is truly their end goal.

A Sponsor can participate in three different ways: 1) through advertising, 2) gifting a membership to their favorite writer, or 3) simply sharing a financial contribution to help support the ongoing costs of WIC. However one chooses to share his or her abundance, a Sponsor’s generosity is an important part of our community as we go forward. Each sponsor will be recognized unless gifts are given anonymously.

Each investment made by businesses, corporations, and/or individuals allows WIC to keep our membership costs affordable, permitting us to go forward with hopeful enthusiasm as we build a robust writing community.  

The information below details the many levels of Sponsorship from which to choose. From our heart well … to our inkwell … to the blank page we fill … we thank you!

Our current Sponsorship levels are good for one year and are being offered to anyone who would like to support a writer or the ongoing development of WIC. Writers Inner Circle is a grassroots organization and will take a village to help it grow. The following are long-term goals for our members and the community at large:

 (1) A one-year program that strategically allows a writer to craft his or her talent from the first word to completed manuscript by the end of their year membership;

(2) access to membership retreats and workshops, professional writing events, and author lectures;
(3) expansion of our signature program, The Storytellers Edge, which gives all levels of writers the opportunity to present original works to a live forum;
(4) virtual writers’ roundtables gathering writers across the country together;
(5) discounts for our vetted vendors; and
(6) participation in non-profit programs for literacy and writing programs for children and young adults.

The support of our sponsors is indispensable to the ongoing work we do here at WIC for our members. Thank you for visiting our page and exploring how you can make a difference!
