One moment please...

Make a difference in the lives of local writers.  

A gift to Literary Cleveland helps fund year-round workshops, classes, readings, conferences, fellowships, publishing opportunities, and neighborhood writing programs. Our goal, as always, is to help local writers improve their craft, advance their careers, and find a supportive community.

 

Giving Impact

Your gift will help us write a new literary future for Cleveland. With your support we can:‍

Foster Excellence 
Celeste Ng, Anthony Doerr, Susan Orlean, and Rita Dove all got their start here in Northeast Ohio. Help develop more great authors by supporting writing workshops, reading classes, internships and fellowships, and publishing opportunities such as Gordon Square Review for writers right here in Cleveland.

Amplify Marginalized Voices
How many vital stories haven’t been told due to a lack of access to writing and publishing opportunities? Donations like yours help us remove barriers to entry and to provide additional free and low-cost programs like Cleveland Stories, our free place-based writing program for underserved communities.‍

Build a Vibrant Literary Community
Literary Cleveland supports writers and readers from all neighborhoods, backgrounds, and genres with programs like the Inkubator Conference. By bringing the entire literary arts community together we can build bridges, break down barriers, and use the power of words to change ourselves, our city, and our world.
