The Writers’ Fund

by W. Andrew Powell

The last few years have been brutal for Canadian media, and I want to do something about it.

I want to put some of the country’s very talented writers and journalists to work, but I need help. There is just not enough advertising money for The GATE to currently support hiring writers, so I’m asking readers, fans, and the entertainment industry to help me raise enough money to commission a number of articles.

My goal is to raise $2000 so I can commission 10-12 articles from a diverse range of writers for arts and entertainment stories. And I’m putting 100% of everything raised to paying journalists for these Indigenous and Canadian entertainment stories.

Anything you can contribute will help on the mission to not only help writers and journalists, but to hopefully also advance careers.

And if you can’t contribute, please consider passing this on to others. I’ll update The GATE’s Twitter feed (#CanadianWritersFund) with progress reports.

Update: Writers can pitch their stories now. And thanks to the contributors who have already made a donation. Your support means a lot.
