As cuts to funding for the arts continue at both the federal and state level, it is your generosity that allows River Styx to continue to serve the community. Each year we hold the Literary Feast in an effort to support our programming, including our magazine, the River Styx Reading Series, the Hungry Young Poets Reading Series, the River Styx Writers Workshops, and the Grand Boulevard Workshops. With every dollar from the ticket price and donations, we can sustain these programs and create new ones in the St. Louis community. We hope to expand each year, reaching people all over the United States and across the world.
