ACW for me is a close-knit community in a far-flung place. In 2003 I took my first workshop with Bibi Wein. We are still in close contact to this day. A grant or donation waived the $75 fee at that time. My husband and I were building our house and money was tight. The workshop seemed like a luxury, now I see ACW as a necessity. And I’d like to give back the $75… I’ll drop a check in the mail today [join Renate in giving now].

I’ve learned from so many excellent writers AND teachers (it’s not a given that a person can be both) like Bibi and Betsy Folwell and Natalia Rachel Singer. They’ve helped me along in my career with critique, advice, blurbs for books, throwing writing gigs my way and above all offering encouragement. I could also go on about the advice and help I’ve received from members like Brian Mann and Gary VanRiper and others.

Thank you for reaching out and for the wonderful work you’ve done in the past and for managing ACW through these tough times. – Renate Wildermuth
