The furry fandom’s first residential workshop, RAWR (Regional Anthropomorphic Writers Retreat), debuted successfully last January, with five attendees working together, writing their stories and critiquing each other’s work. Our instructors were Kyell Gold and Ryan Campbell, with guest lectures from Watts Martin and Jeff Eddy (of Sofawolf Press).
We’re into the guts of planning for the 2017 retreat, and we need your help to take RAWR to the next level.
How can you help?
We will be hosting a Write-a-Thon as a fundraiser, following the Clarion model, and we need writers!
How does that work?
-You sign up to donate your time and skill to the Write-a-Thon.
-You put the word out to your fans and followers that you’re participating in a fundraising Write-a-Thon.
-Supporters agree to donate via a digital donation button which we will provide.
-You write! That writing can be anything: Blog post, screenplay, novel, short story, nonfiction article. It doesn’t matter what you write, really. A write-a-thon is different from a walk-a-thon in that there aren’t necessarily pledges for certain numbers, either of posts, words, or completed stories.
What’s the goal?
If we can raise 4000 dollars, that will cover securing the venue for our 2017 workshop and arrange for our instructors and guest lecturers. Our stretch goal, if we raise enough, is to be able to offer some financial assistance to an accepted applicant who cannot afford the workshop otherwise.
