The events of the 23rd Annual Literary Arts Festival are made possible in part by Poets & Writers through grants it has received from The James Irvine Foundation and the Hearst Foundations, by the support of WACC, the World Arts & Cultures Committee of Grossmont College, and by the many patrons who have generously contributed to the Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca College’s Creative Writing Fund.
Making a tax-deductible one-time gift or a monthly contribution to the Creative Writing Fund will help us continue bringing world class authors and important literary programs into the lives of our students. Use the "Donate" tab in the left margin for a direct link to our donations page on the FGCC website. It's quick, easy, and secure.
