Our annual dinner, now in its fourth year, brings established and aspiring writers together to celebrate and inspire each other. While the gathering is rich in conversation and connection, it has a higher goal. Proceeds from the dinner provide funds to support outreach and grant making endeavors that assist New Mexico writers seeking to further their craft.
