SouthWest Writers is proud to serve writers in our community through classes, workshops, conferences, and monthly meetings, as well as an annual contest and a monthly newsletter.
We’re a volunteer organization, grateful for donations from supporters who share our love of writing and reading. Here are several ways to help SouthWest Writers:
PayPal Giving Fund
PayPal Giving Fund helps people support their favorite charities online. We receive donations through PayPal, eBay, and other technology platforms and make grants to our donors’ recommended charities. PayPal Giving Fund is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID: 45-0931286).

Shop through AmazonSmile
Many people shop on Amazon for books and movies, and (especially now with COVID) many are also purchasing groceries. Amazon donates a percentage of all its sales to non-profit organizations. You can choose SouthWest Writers as the organization that receives the donation generated by your purchases. (Note that this does NOT increase the price of your items.)
To enroll in the program go to https://smile.amazon.com/. They will step you through the process, or to make it easier to select SWW as your charity, go to AmazonSmile Setup on our website where you’ll find instructions with screenshots.
Shop at Bookworks
Bookworks is one of Albuquerque’s last remaining local, independent bookstores. As a member of the Bookworks Affiliate Program, SWW receives a commission for books purchased through our assigned link. Bookworks believes that when a visitor “shops at Bookworks online, they experience the knowledge and passion of independent booksellers who share their love of books with their customers and their communities. They will also gain access to information and news about authors, store events, myriad recommendations, and access to a database of over five million titles.” When you shop with Bookworks, you support SWW and a local bookseller.
Buy SWW Branded Products at RedBubble
SouthWest Writers has partnered with Redbubble to make our logos and designs available on everyday objects such as t-shirts, notebooks, ball caps, and—wait for it—even shower curtains! To purchase a product, navigate to Redbubble and pick a design you love on a product you want. Redbubble will print on demand and mail the item directly to you. SouthWest Writers receives 20% of the sale as a “royalty.” For more information, go to this page on our site or go directly to the SWW shop on Redbubble.
