There are four different ways your tax-deductible donation can help The Muse Writers Center:
Tuition Assistance: We offer low-cost, high-quality creative and creative writing classes, but sometimes people can't afford a class. It's our policy to never turn anyone away from taking a class because they can't afford it. We established The Margaret Bean Tuition Assistance Fund to help defray the cost of tuition to those who need it.
