We bid a fond farewell to the Writing Academy, a community that has offered education, inspiration, and encouragement to beginning writers and seasoned professionals alike--for thirty-seven years.
We are grateful for our loyal members and friends who have contributed so much to our mission of helping writers--especially to our founder, the late Harley Swiggum, and Olga Williams, George Lobien, Benny Boling, Jerry Elsea, Lonnie Docter, Kay Clark, Nancy Remmert--and all who have held offices, taught classes, written curriculum, led our worship, performed music, led critique groups, and organized our seminars.
We are grateful for all our writers who have produced books, music, drama, poetry, films, curriculum, and so many marvelous creative works. And we are grateful for all who have prayed through the years for this group and its mission.
We are sad to be closing our doors, yet joyful when we reflect on all the successes of the past thirty-seven years. We ceased operations as a 501(c)3 this year (2015), and we have donated our remaining funds to other non-profits.
We wish great writing success to all of our Writing Academy family. It has been our pleasure to serve you.
The Writing Academy was a 501(c)3 non-profit organization,
