Online Fundraiser

This Giving Season, please consider The Republic of Letters. We're a small organization dedicated to the literary arts. We help people write books by providing creative editing services, writing classes, as well as reading and publishing opportunities, and soon, promotional opportunities. We'd like to focus on championing all local authors and helping them get their books into the hands of new readers. 


Your donations will help enable us to build a local author database both online and in an old-school card-catalogue. We’re inviting each of you to join our republic of letters. 


Our overhead cost is minimal, but our dreams are lofty. We're quixotic and scrappy, and really just happy to be here, but there's work to do, a tremendous amount of work. Money makes work easier. But money's not everything. There are many non-moneyed ways you could help our cause: You could take a class, or join one of our discussion groups. You can give us your opinion or come talk about your project. You could say to someone: "Hey, you're a writer, did you hear about that new writing space? They help people write books.”

But if you believe in our message, and you have some spare change, we would be thrilled to accept your donation and immediately put it to work. 

Become a MEMBER. Memberships come with cool stuff. 

Or please donate contribute to our Facebook campaign. Thank you!
