WriteSpace First Anniversary Party
Writespace, Houston’s grassroots literary center, is celebrating its first birthday in the month of June with an Indiegogo campaign and birthday party. Writespace’s Indiegogo campaign goal of $5,000 will support scholarships for writers, expanding the Young Writers Program for writers age 14-19, an emergency fund for instructors and general operating support.
The Edward and Helen Oppenheimer Foundation will match contributions up to $5,000, doubling Writespace’s fundraising efforts. Donors will receive exclusive perks for their contributions, including signed books by Houston authors, subscriptions to Gulf Coast Magazine, a bookbinding workshop and a writing retreat at Alvin, Texas brewery Fetching Lab. The campaign launches Writespace’s first anthology, Our Space: Shorts & Poetry from the Houston Community, which includes pieces from Writespace instructors and the Houston community.
