Who We Are and What We Do

Informal Write Action GatheringWrite Action is a non-profit organization formed to strengthen a community of writers in the Brattleboro area, and to encourage, nurture, and promote the literary arts for the mutual benefit of the writing, and at-large communities.

What We Do:

  • Act as a network for area writers and appreciators of writing ­ our email network has grown to over 300 subscribers who receive notices of area literary events and opportunities.
  • Organize open readings several times a year in various venues throughout downtown Brattleboro and the surrounding area
  • Lin Harris-Seares Writers' Emergency Fund ­give grants to writers in a dire financial emergency, where a little can do a lot.
  • Brattleboro Literary Festival Brochure Awards and scholarship program ­ High school senior award; writing contests; scholarship help for summer writing camps
  • Publish collections of local writing - "The Best of Write Action", published in 2003; "Life In Windham County", 2005
  • Collaborate with other arts and town organizations and businesses. Examples are the 250th Anniversary project in conjunction with the Historical Society and Southern Vermont Photography Center; "Life In Windham County" contest with the Brattleboro Reformer.
  • Annual Picnic, where writers new to the area can meet others of the writing community, shmooze and share their work
  • Partners in the Brattleboro Literary Festival, which annually hosts over twenty award-winning, and up-and-coming writers readings their work in venues throughout downtown, for one weekend in October. All readings are free and open to the public.
