Writers of Color in the Write-a-thon

As I mentioned before, I’m participating in the Write-a-thon to raise money for Clarion West and the Butler scholarship. There are also other writers of color participating (though they’re only raising money for CW). If you have any amount to donate, even if it just $1/week or a flat $10, I encourage you to do so if you’re interested in fostering better speculative fiction. Clarion West graduates go on to be amazing writers, just look at Nisi.

You can sponsor by visiting individual writer’s pages on the Clarion West site.  Here’s a list of the (known to me) writers of color on the list of participants:

If your name belongs on this list and isn’t, please let me know in comments. (I went off of pictures for people I don’t know.)

    Thank you, Tempest. All I can say about being amazing is, takes one to know one.

    Three more writers of color joined the Write-a-thon at the last minute, and their pages are now up, too:

    Adrian Khactu
    April Lott
    Tracy J. Harford

    All dear to my heart and worthy of your kind attention.

    I am also participating in the Write-a-thon, and would like to be included in this list.

    OMG! I can’t believe you got left out. Everybody, Christopher Caldwell is one of the two Octavia E. Butler Scholars from 2007, and he’s surely worthy of Write-a-thon sponsorship.

    Chris, I proofed your page. I can’t believe I missed adding you to Tempest’s list. I apologize. Sorry. How can I make it up to you?
