Why become a Porch member?

 

·      Nourish your own writing practice.

Whether you are a seasoned scribe or new to the life of letters, The Porch offers a wide variety of experiences to feed the literary soul. By becoming a Porch member, you join a community of writers and supporters of writing who are not only dedicated to the power and possibility of the written word but are also committed to fostering literary lives. 

 

·      Participate in Nashville’s literary community.

Nashville is growing by the minute, thanks in part to the spirit of creativity that thrives within its proverbial city walls; the literary arts are a unique and important part of this boom. By becoming a Porch member, you support not only The Porch's mission to foster the development of writers, but in essence, you participate in Nashville's creative culture.

 

·      Support creative writing outreach and education in Middle Tennessee.

By becoming a member of The Porch, you support our outreach initiatives across Nashville, including our N.E.W. (Nashville Emerging Writers) teen program, our summer work with Time to Rise at-risk 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, as well as our adult programs. Whether to advance literacy through creative writing or to utilize writing workshops as a means toward self-expression, self-reflection, or storytelling, The Porch has much to offer not only its writers but all its community as a whole.
