Help TORCH amplify Black women writers today, tomorrow, and for generations to come!
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement. In the United States, GivingTuesday is locally-led in over 240 communities, networks, and coalitions.
Torch Literary Arts is proud to join the many organizations doing important work to positively impact the world. Your support helps TORCH provide vital programs for emerging and experienced Black women writers. Our programs include paid publishing opportunities on TorchLiteraryArts.org, our Wildfire Reading Series that partners with local independent bookstores to showcase notable authors, creative writing and professional development workshops, and our new week-long retreat launching in summer 2023 in Austin, TX.
Every bit helps us fulfill our mission to publish, promote, and create advancement opportunities for Black women writers. Please consider giving any amount to help us reach our goal of $15,000 in individual giving for 2022.
