News: PCCs Writer-in-Residence Program Receives Large Donation
The Pasadena Festival of Women Authors has donated $5,000 to Pasadena City College’s Writer-in-Residence program, more than double the donation from last year.
“We’re very excited that the Writer-in-Residence Program is going to continue,” said Amy Ulmer said. “We’ve committed to doing more, because of the money.”
First launched in 2009, the PFWA aims to recognize the literary accomplishments of diverse women authors, to advance community awareness of locally authored literature, and to raise money for a community non-profit.
“The festival is a really nice event,” Ulmer said. “They encourage emerging writers, which is great.”
The PCC Writer-in-Residence visits classes, holds writing workshops and does a public reading at PCC. Last October, the college hosted its first Writer-in-Residence, alumna Reyna Grande.
