Sponsorship 

Thank you for thinking about becoming a sponsor of the WriteAngles Conference.

The conference takes place on April 6, 2024, at the Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley Street. 

Your sponsorship will support this three-decade tradition

This writers’ conference is the proud revival of an event that served western Massachusetts for over 30 years until cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.  Straw Dog Writers Guild, a local 501©3 literary  organization (EIN 45-3362297) is asking for your help to bring it back as a valued part of the vibrant, diverse literary community of Western Massachusetts.

Your sponsorship will help make the conference accessible to more writers

The conference will welcome writers at all levels of income, background and development for craft workshops, roundtable conversations, inspiration and networking. The program features an endowed keynote speaker of national note, Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, as well as opportunities to meet individually with literary agents. In accordance with the mission of Straw Dog Writers Guild, invited presenters embody a diversity of age, race/ethnicity, and gender identity.

Your sponsorship will help us bring in great presenters

Presenters will receive an honorarium for their work, and a generous scholarship program will make it possible for lower-income individuals to participate irrespective of income. Our lean budget will be raised by fees and tuition, by grants, and by individual and regional organizational sponsors to ensure inclusion of all writers who wish to attend. 

As a key sponsor, you will have a unique role at the heart of this regional literary gathering. We offer six tiers of sponsorship opportunities, each named for a Massachusetts writer who, through hard work and dedication to social justice, affected the world and our lives for the better.
