Many thanks to all my blog and Facebook friends who have supported me by donating to
Asheville Writers in the Schools. You all are the best!
Your donation will help to fund this year's Family Voices program at Hall Fletcher Elementary School in Asheville, where 70% of the students participate in the free and reduced lunch program. The Family Voices program brings together 3rd and 4th grade families for a series of evening creative writing workshops. Dinner, childcare and transportation are provided and the evening is conducted in both Spanish and English so that Latino families can participate most comfortably. You can check out the bilingual anthology that came out of last year's program by clicking on this link http://www.blurb.com/b/5417593-happy-days-and-musical-ways
And, just in case you missed it (and because I was asked to post this one last time) -- there's still time to help foster literary creativity in the Asheville schools by donating to this great non-profit -- find out more at ashevillewritersintheschools.org.
You can click HERE to sponsor me (or one of the other writers) via PayPal.
End of shameless begging . . . back to scenery and kittehs and other stuff.
