Every woman writer, no matter her age, ethnicity, or genre, has a seat waiting for her at the Storyknife table. Welcome!


Donate. Now that we’re in business, help keep us there.

*Sponsor a Storyknife Fellowship. Donate $5,000 to support one Storyknife resident for one year. You may name your Fellowship and the genre your fellow writes in, and we ask that you commit to three years. Our executive director, Erin Hollowell, will be happy to talk to you about it at ehollowell@storyknife.org.

*Sponsor a bench or a garden spot along the trail and name it for your favorite person. Our executive director, Erin Hollowell, will be happy to talk to you about it at ehollowell@storyknife.org.

*We welcome donations of appreciated stock. Our executive director, Erin Hollowell, will be happy to talk to you about it at ehollowell@storyknife.org.

*This year we’ll have an endowment fund ready to accept all of the above as well as testamentary donations. We plan on a ten-year fundraising campaign for the endowment, for a minimum goal of $5 million.

Thank you, Friends of Storyknife!
