Howland Literary Gives Back


Hear from Carrie, "When I started Howland Literary, LLC, I always knew that, beyond advocating for authors and shepherding their brilliant books into the world, it would be an agency committed to giving back. Yesterday, Howland Literary was thrilled to donate $125 worth of pillows, bedding, toiletries, and toys to S.A.F.E. Place, a women’s shelter in Battle Creek, MI. Many thanks to volunteer coordinator Tina Michmerhuizen (pictured here) for helping to facilitate this donation, which the shelter said they very much needed. And thank you to our wonderful authors whose faith in us allows us to to do what we love: publishing books and giving back."
