Sarah and I spent Friday at the Montpelier Statehouse participating in an Arts Advocacy Day hosted by our primary funder, the Vermont Arts Council. The organization’s financial support of writinginsideVT has allowed us to ‘write-inside’ with more than 100 incarcerated women during the past two years. VAC recently highlighted writinginsideVT on its Web site as a featured grantee. Click on the link, then the Women Writing for (a) Change thumbnail.
We are massively grateful to the Vermont Arts Council for its ongoing support. During Friday’s activities, we took a ‘quick pic’ with the generous folks behind our grant funding.
