Writers Rising Up is a 501(c) (3) public charity. We encourage a deeper understanding and participation in environmental stewardship. Through the literary arts at community events, contests, workshops, literary performances, interpretive installations, our focus is on nature education and writing. Through our submission opportunities we promote writers who associate their work to cultural, spiritual and social connections to place, the land, natural habitat, including flora, fauna and wetlands.
