We support writers through:
Craft workshops

Straw Dog Writers Guild is seeking three people to serve on our Development Committee. Tasks include researching for suitable grants, assisting with grant writing, event sponsor cultivation, and meeting monthly for 1 hour. Experience in development is a plus but not essential.
