UPDATE! (June 27th 2019) –
See About Wadadli Pen for the history of the project.
Thanks to anyone who has supported the project through the years.
As for the future, the project needs help – financial and legal – if it’s going to push toward non-profit status and position itself to access grant funding and growth. Bottom line. If you can assist with either financial or legal support, pro bono, email wadadlipen at gmail dot com
As for the 2020 Challenge. Fingers crossed for its return. If you’re interested in financially supporting the Challenge season, email wadadlipen at gmail dot com. If you are interested in volunteering in some capacity, email wadadlipen at gmail dot com. If you’re interested in interning (College-age students only), email wadadlipen at gmail dot com. Nothing in place yet but we’ve been doing this since 2004 and are hopeful of continuing to do our part to nurture and showcase the literary arts in Antigua and Barbuda. – Joanne C.
