New ERA Writing Program

The New Era Program aims to inspire those seeking to improve their abilities or find a community with like-minded individuals and writers. We want to provide support and resources to writers and writing programs to help amplify their voices and improve their capacity and capabilities. Our Foundation believes that being an effective writer and communicator is one of the most important life skills.
