Support the Clemente Writing Course

Your donation will help us bring the stories of Clemente Course scholars to the world. Launched in the summer of 2020, the 6-week Clemente Writing Course is offered to the low-income, adult graduates of the Clemente Courses in Dorchester, New Bedford, Springfield, and Worcester, free of charge. The focus is on creating publishable opinion pieces, and all essays are included in print and online anthologies published by Mass Humanities. Through the Federation of State Humanities Councils, The Andrew W. Mellon funded the summer 2020 and spring 2021 courses. For the summer of 2021, we are looking to donors like you for support.

Our goal for the summer 2021 course: $35,000
