Thank you for your donations during the Spring of 2020. Your generous support made it possible for us to offer a variety of programming for young writers from May - July 2020 despite financial uncertainty. While we will no longer be operating at any kind of loss in 2021, your donations can still support those who want to write with us, but cannot afford the tuition for whichever event or camp they want to attend. We offer scholarships to any writer who fits this description; anyone who wants to write with us can. Any financial support you are willing to offer will contribute to this effort. 

*If making a donation please make sure to write "For the Denver Writing Project" in the Comments box. This will specifically ear-mark the donation for the DWP instead of the CU Denver English departmentin general (whom we love and receive a great deal of support from, but probably not who you were trying to donate to by clicking here).
