Your contributions support multiple programs and projects in San Miguel de Allende:

“My First Book” Reading Program

Year-round, a teacher meets with children in a rural community to introduce them to books and the love of reading. Since 2013.

Libros Para Todos

Each year we distribute 300+ books by the same author to youth in rural communities before the author visits these communities to meet the youth.

Annual Teen Creative Writing Workshops

Each year, 60± local teens participate in one of two workshops (ages 12-14; ages 15-19). Winners present their work at the Writers’ Conference and get a donated, free computer.

Annual Writers’ Conference Adult Scholarship Program

Each year, the Literary Sala provides 30± scholarships to Mexican writers and teachers, and underwrites much of the cost of producing the Spanish language track.

Sala Literaria Bellas Artes

A public reading, writing, and meeting room that hosts a variety of literary programs for San Miguel youth.

Wayne Greenhaw (1940–2011), award-winning author of 22 books, lived in San Miguel de Allende part time for over 40 years. An active member of the Literary Sala, Wayne loved supporting young writers. These programs continue his legacy.
