Why should you care? I can't say it any better than Mishell Baker already has:
And now, the more specific incentives:
- If you donate at least $23 in my name, you'll get the opportunity to name a character in one of my upcoming "512 Words or Fewer" weekly flash fiction stories.
- If you donate $47 or more in my name, you can give me a one-sentence story idea, and I'll turn it into a future "512"!
Of course, you're also free to support the other fine writers also participating. Your entire, tax-deductible amount goes directly to the non-profit Clarion Foundation, which runs annual workshops to train the best and brightest new talent in speculative fiction. We writers are participating to help this genre flourish and grow, and we hope you'll donate because you want the same.
Thanks in advance!
