In an age where local funding for the arts has plummeted, Wordcrafters in Eugene provides creative writing programs that offer students of all ages opportunities for academic and personal growth. We hold summer and no school day camps, sponsor an annual contest for young writers, bring national authors to schools, and put professional writers in classrooms for multi-week writing residencies as part of our Writers in the School (WITS) program. We also host a yearly writing conference for adult writers, host free library workshops and opportunities to chat each month with a published author at Reading Like a Writer, and we also offer many writing classes in our modest workshop space.
We believe in providing writers and readers with opportunities to strengthen their craft, deepen their connection with literature, and share their knowledge with each other and with future generations. Writing stories can change and save lives, and we’re here to help you tell yours.
We are acutely aware that all of this work is only possible through the support of the community.
Here are some ways you can help:
Five authors will be speaking at the conference, and we’d love to make them feel the Eugene love with some beautiful local products.
  • Provide samples or swag for conference attendees.
Our conference will have 100+ attendees from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond, and we’d like to send them your way while they’re in town.
  • Make a tax-deductible donation to help support our programming all year round.
In return for any of these generous donations, you will be listed as a sponsor in the program and acknowledged at the event, on our website, and in our materials throughout the year.  We are also happy to include your promotional materials in our swag bag. Any items you donate can—and should!—have your logo on them. We will also include signage to be displayed with your contribution, and our emcee will say a few words about your establishment and your products. And of course, you would have our undying gratitude and continued patronage.
Please email us by September 21 at to let us know we can count on your support. We will make arrangements for pick up, and get a description, logo, and other sponsor material at that time. Wordcrafters is a 501(c) 3 non-profit. Your donation will be tax deductible as allowed by law, and we will provide a tax donation receipt.
Thank you,
