It's a beautiful, bustling autumn at the RAWK office. That's right! We now have a RAWK office! Thanks to the generous Reality Factory Small Business Incubation program, we have a brand-spanking-new office in downtown Kalamazoo. We currently share the space with 1977 Mopeds and Grayling Ceramics, and are enamored of the big, old, eclectic building and all its industrial charm. We'll be hosting a few events there this fall, so we encourage you to come down and check out our new digs.
There is so much to catch you up on, and a lot of exciting change in the works. We've recently launched our web store, where we have a fun array of RAWK swag and reading material. Not only can you pick up a tee or a tote or some original artwork from a friend of RAWK, you can score a copy of one of our student anthologies from the past couple of seasons. These books offer surprise and delight on every page. And, yes, you'll be fashionable and entertained, but you'll also be supporting scholarships and varied and dynamic programming for school-aged youth in the Kalamazoo area. You'll basically be getting smarter, making the world a little brighter, and looking good while doing so. That's some potent one-stop shopping.
Our other thrilling news is that we've set the date for our first-ever write-a-thon! It's called "Write On! RAWK On!" and we're being completely unbiased when we say it's going to be a blast! It's a day-long affair for all ages, and a chance for something a little different. We'll have games and guests and prizes and surprises, and we'll cap it all off with a party in the evening!
