Right now there’s a sorority house in Seattle filled with eighteen amazing science fiction and fantasy writers. They’re studying with some of the best writers and editors in the field, forming lifelong friendships, and learning so much about their writing that will shape and propel their stories for years to come.
Two years ago I was lucky enough to be in that house. And a scholarship from Clarion West donors helped me get there.
The 2013 Clarion West class is about to enter their last week of the workshop, and it will also be the last week of this year’s write-a-thon.
I signed up for the write-a-thon and have been working on my first novel, Recovery. It’s a story about a young woman and her two ravens living in Fairbanks. She’s a former activist, suffering from care fatigue, and slowly gaining the power to enact change from an unsuspected source.
I’m hoping to get a few sponsors for the Clarion West Write-a-thon, and in return I will mail each donor a broadside with an excerpt from my novel in progress and an image to inspire you to write a new short story.
Interested? Here’s how it works:
- Go to my Write-a-thon profile and click on the donate button http://www.clarionwest.org/writeathon/jennimoody
- Donate any amount to support Clarion West ($1, $5 – every bit helps)
- At the end of the week I’ll receive an email from Clarion West listing my donors and their addresses. At this point I’ll send the goodies off to you in the mail.
- Goodies will arrive in your mail! Hooray!
Clarion West made such an amazing difference in my life, and from stories I’ve heard from others, I know I’m not alone. Please join me in supporting the amazing stories of tomorrow.
