For any of you in the Seattle area, I recommend stopping by the Clarion West readings (at the SFM) on Tuesday nights. Clarion West is a non-profit organization, and is always grateful for donations. One way to donate, and encourage a writer, is to sponsor someone in the write-a-thon. No, I’m not writing for it, but I do plan to sponsor a few folks. I mean, hey, its tax deductible, and helping a good sf writer get started might be as good for society as $50 to the United Way, right?
