Clarion Write-a-Thon: I'm in this year

Clarion Write-a-Thon



What's Clarion (UCSD)?
It's a six-weeks-long science fiction and fantasy workshop founded in 1968. I attended in 1996, when it was held at Michigan State University in East Lansing. The workshop has since moved to the University of California San Diego, where I hope there are fewer mosquitoes. It has also spawned Clarion West, a workshop in Seattle.

What's the Write-a-Thon? It's a fundraiser for Clarion. During the six weeks that Clarion is underway — this year, June 26 to August 6 — writers who support Clarion write with a goal in mind, and seek sponsors. More info here:
http://www.theclarionfoundation.org/writeathon/wrtn-home.htm

What's my goal? To finish editing my novel for my publisher. I will be blogging about that here during the next six weeks.

Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to sponsor me. (Or another writer, at least. You can chose among hundreds for Clarion UCSD and West — writers love Clarion.) No donation is too small (or too big).

My sponsor page:

You can win great prizes if you donate:

And if I get enough donations, I can win great prizes, too. (Hint.)

In any case, I'll get a finished manuscript, you'll be able to buy the novel in 2012, and Clarion will continue to produce exciting new writers.
