Dzanc is doing something very cool in the spirit of giving this holiday season. It’s called a Write-A-Thon and I can already hear you saying, “This sounds like a whole bunch of bullshit,” but I assure you, it is not.
Here’s all the vital info, but the gist is this: Starting today through Sunday they’re trying to get all 2000 people in the Emerging Writers Network to donate their time and money to supporting Dzanc’s efforts in the literary arts by writing for hours and hours and hours. Put simply, I’m donating six hours of my time this Saturday to writing. You can sponsor me by going here and clicking on Christopher Heavener. This is a tax deductible donation. The money goes to supporting the Dzanc Writer in Residence Program, which gets grossly talented writers to teach in high schools with underfunded or non-existent writing programs, and the Dzanc Prize, which gives a grant of $5,000 to work on a community service-based literary project. Both worthy causes. So click the link above and let’s give until we have nothing left to give!
