49 Writers supports the artistic development of writers throughout Alaska, fosters a writing community, and builds an audience for literature. We envision a vibrant community of Alaskan writers coming together to inspire, create, and share. We value creativity, craft, and culture. 49 Writers creates literary community through writing classes and workshops, literary events including readings and discussions, collaborations with arts-focused organizations state and nationwide, and special events including our annual Tutka Bay Writers Retreat.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Pick.Click.Give. is an integral part of our development strategy. The funds generated via Pick.Click.Give are a significant portion of our annual fundraising, and the connections we make via the campaign can be valuable ones we might not make through our regular programming.
