Ghostwrite the Future of Literary Arts in New Orleans
The Ghostwriters Guild is our new monthly-giving program named after the Haunting Supply Co. that will front our new youth writing center. The program will provide sustainable support to the 1,500 New Orleans youth we serve. By becoming a member of the Ghostwriters Guild, you'll receive "undying" gratitude and special benefits. Similar to the way you can become a member at a museum, our membership benefits are designed for you to deepen your engagement with our work. Membership benefits for monthly donors are based on their total annual giving.
