What’s the WHY for supporting the Lexington Writer’s Room?


When you donate to the Lexington Writer’s Room, you’re supporting a group of active writers who are producing professional-level work. They take seriously their craft and the business side of writing. You're helping our members produce more books, short stories, essays, and poems and supporting their ability to ensure their works reach more readers.


You can make a donation by clicking the button or using the QR Code below. You can choose to:

  • Support our overall operations and mission ("General Operating Funds"), or

  • Earmark your donation to support our Underrepresented Writer's Fund which provides membership stipends to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+,  or disabled writers with a financial need.


If you have any questions about how you or your organization can support the Lexington Writer's Room, please contact us at We’d love to chat with you!


THANK YOU for your support.​
