One of the additions to this year’s Pepper Place Farmers Market is the weekly writing booth being conducted by the Desert Island Supply Company. This past Saturday visitors to the booth wrote pieces about turnips; last week the focus was lettuce.

This new writing center is based in Birmingham’s Woodlawn neighborhood is currently in the process of securing 501©3 status. It’s similar to programs found in Valencia, CA and Austin, TX.

It recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to expand their efforts and this weekend became one of the first organizations to be awarded funds by the Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham via the Kresge Arts in Birmingham program.

The full list of organizations awarded grants (and descriptions of their projects) is available over on Timetable.
