Annual Report

Year in Review

September 1, 2017–August 31, 2018

Through this fiscal year we have been successful shepherds of the programs you, our members, have made possible for years while still imagining how we might find new ways to foster a thriving literary community and inspire a passion for literature.

As always, our incredible teaching artists offered challenging and supportive classes that helped writers of all ages grow and connect. Our awards and fellowships continued to support emerging and established writers, ensuring that Minnesota remains one of this country’s most enviable literary ecosystems. Our events focused on connecting provocative writers with curious readers in one-of-a-kind conversations that expand beyond the work on the page. Our Year Long Writing Projects, which help advance serious writers, expanded to offer a memoir project with Nicole Helget in addition to the wildly successful novel project with Peter Geye. And the Loft has remained committed to ensuring that as many people as possible can participate in our programming. With support from the Minnesota State Arts Board and our members, we expanded our scholarship program this year.

In addition to all the great things we continue to do, this year we challenged ourselves to put literature at the center of civic life. Much like how an art museum might present a special exhibit, we have begun to present themes around a single idea. We believe that poems and stories can be an important lens through which to view the world, and can be part of important issues and conversations in civic life. Loft themes compel us all to look at the words we write and authors we read in new ways. In Fiscal Year 2018 we explored the themes of Vigilance, To Be Honest, and True North.

As you may know, the Loft will launch Wordplay in 2019. While the event will happen in a few months, the work to make it happen started in 2017. We hired a festival director, expanded our internship program, and hired a logistics team. Relationships with new financial and community partners were built. Eventually Wordplay will be a support to other Loft programming, but in this development year we were working hard to raise money to make it a success through corporate sponsorship, individual donations, and a successful Kickstarter campaign.

I believe that in this last year we truly offered a place for anyone who cares about words. We continue to support the solitary writer in their pursuits but also push the doors open for social exploration and conversation around stories and poems. As we continue to grow and learn we seek new ways to celebrate literature without ever forgetting the magic of putting pen to paper.

One member recently stated:

I love writing at the Loft, especially on a Saturday morning. I get a coffee, then breathe deeply as I slowly walk up the winding staircase. I sit at one of the square tables, open my laptop, and snuggle into one of the comfy chairs. Immediately I can feel the inspiration surround me ... it comes from the walls, the air, the artwork, the books, everything around me gives off a powerful and inspiring vibe. I recognize that it is my happy place. And then I start to write.

It is our members that make this all possible. Thank you. I hope you find that same inspiration and comfort here at the Loft, however you enter.
