For a Good Cause or Two…

Weave Magazine is holding a subscription drive this month and they are halfway to their goal — consider helping them out.  Stop by their site and buy a year’s subscription to read great work by a variety of writers including Mary Biddinger, Brent Fisk, Rachel Mallino, Frank DePoole, Mary Alexandra Agner, and others (include two of my own poems in the newest issue!) 

And….

Do you need a reader for some new summer poems?  Are you new to creative nonfiction and need some feedback on some of your work?  Do you have a short story you have been trying to revise but just can’t get a certain scene or character right?  Then, DZANC Books may have a solution (or at least a step in the right direction).  DZANC Books has just started a new program titled the DZANC Creative Writing Sessions which is an online program that allows writers to work with published authors for one-on-one feedback.  Session prices vary (but all are very reasonable).  And the really great news?  The authors in this program are donating 100 percent of their time, for the money goes toward the writing programs that DZANC runs for students in grades 4 – 12.  According to the DZANC’s website, “These additional programs – currently being run nationally by Dzanc – are offered free of charge to students who would not otherwise be able to afford and experience the sort of writing programs Dzanc offers.”  You should check it out!  I can speak from experience.  I just did a two hour session with one of the poets and I got very valuable feedback.  It’s a win-win situation — you get feedback for your work and you donate money for a great cause.

We all know that times are tough right now — but never forget to support the literary arts when you can!

    Thanks Marie for stopping by…I like WordPress, too! I’m going to add you to my blog list.

    • Thanks, Karen! I’ve visited your blog pretty regularly for quite a while, but when you were on Blogger I couldn’t comment. Then you disappeared! It took a bit to discover where you went to… I’ve added you, too.

  5. […] want to thank Karen Weyant for blogging about her experience with DCWS back in June.  Her post gave me the impetus to try it out, and I’m so happy I did.  Thank […]
