Many of the events in this year’s program were made possible by a generous grant from WACC, the World Arts and Cultures Committee of Grossmont College. Please visit the WACC website for more information about their mission and their giving season.
Our heartfelt thanks also goes out to those patrons and heroes of the literary arts who contributed bountifully to the Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca College’s Creative Writing Fund. We invite you to become one of them through a tax-deductible one-time gift or a monthly contribution to the Creative Writing Fund that will help us continue bringing world class authors and important literary programs into the lives of our students. Click on "Foundation Giving" to go to our donations page on the FGCC website. It's quick, easy, and secure.
Please also visit "Useful Info" for additional thanks and acknowledgments of our Program's supporters.
