Support Live Culture!

Writers On The Edge is supported in part by admission dollars, individual donations, and a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon's arts, humanities and heritage, and the Lincoln County Cultural Coalition. Events held at the Newport Visual Arts Center and the Performing Arts Center are supported in part by the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts and the City of Newport. LazerQuick of Newport provides ongoing printing support to the organization. Books by featured authors are provided for autographing and sales by Nye Beach Books. All donations to Writers On The Edge are gratefully appreciated and fully tax-deductible.

We encourage you to make a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust, which allows you to receive a 100% tax credit on your Oregon tax form -- up to $500 for individuals and $1000 for couples filing jointly.

Tax-deductible contributions from individuals allows us to:

  • host world-famous authors
  • provide free admission to students attending Nye Beach Writers' Series events
  • provide scholarships to students participating in Writers on the Edge youth workshops
  • produce anthologies of student work written during summer poetry workshops
The 2008 summer youth writing workshop was underwritten by grants from the Martin Frank Memorial Fund and the Nye Beach Hotel Scholarship Fund of the Lincoln County Foundation, by a grant from the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund, and by a donation from the Portland-based Wieden & Kennedy advertising agency.
