Clarion West's dedication to emerging speculative fiction writers, diversity in the field, outreach and education is amazing. As a member of the 2016 class, Clarion West changed my life and none of it would have been possible without financial support. I'd love to help give back to the community that's opened so many doors for me over this past year.
My goal for this year's write-a-thon is to produce the first drafts of 3 new short stories in 6 weeks, (dragons? ghost trains? cannibalistic trees and sparrow people? they're all fair game!) If you would like to sponsor me, you can do so here. Any amount is appreciated and all the money goes toward funding Clarion West and its programming, operational costs and scholarships.
I'll be giving shout-outs here on my blog to everyone who sponsors me and, if you donate over $50, you'll get a personalized haiku from me!
