Project #2: StudioSTL

"We have an afterschool program (in addition to our workshops, in-school programs, annual regional literary magazine and newspaper summer camp) where kids are here at our writing studio doing creative writing twice a week, and they would love to be creating products for us to have and sell as part of our social enterprise. We would love to get a coil binding machine so that our young writers can be binding their own publications here in our studio."

The Sloup Grant totaled $210 thanks to everyone who came out and to The Mud House for donating this month's soup--a hearty chickpea minestrone!

Next Sloup: April 25th (it'll sneak up on us - send in your feedback and your proposals as you dream them!)

  1. I heard the story of Sloup on NPR's Marketplace. I'm a writer living in Maryland, a suburb just outside of Washington, D.C. After earning an MFA at the University of Maryland and working as an editor in Baltimore, I know many writers and artists who would love to eat soup and support a grant.

    Any plans for a Sloup in D.C.?
