Below are comments from Rainbow Donors:

Kathy Kitts: I have loved this organization since my first meeting over a decade ago. With all the connections I have made, and the things I have learned from the teachers and speakers, I am back out of retirement, teaching creative writing myself, and pursuing an MFA. In addition, I have over two dozen short stories published. None of this would have happened if it hadn’t been for SWW.

Lynne Sebastian: Writing is, by its very nature, a solitary and often difficult pursuit.  And without the input, encouragement, honest critique, nagging, cheerleading, and commiseration of one’s fellow writers, it is can be even more difficult.  Southwest Writers provides a community of practice and a source of support, instruction, and inspiration for all of us.  Let’s get together and repay that support!  (And also make sure Evelyn has to cough up the full amount 😊)

Cornelia Gamlem:   When I attended my first SouthWest Writers meeting, I was impressed by the energy in the room. As I learned more about the organization, I was delighted to have found a vibrant and welcoming writing community with excellent educational programs. The members offer so much encouragement to their fellow writers.  

Rose Marie Kern:  SouthWest Writers inspired me to integrate the skills and knowledge I’d acquired with creativity stimulated by their educational programs, resulting in numerous published stories, articles, and books.  The people I meet here continually encourage me to expand my vision.
