Regular readers will know that I am deeply indebted to the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy writing workshop, and this summer, I'm going to try to pay that forward, and you can help. From June 26 to August 6, I'll be writing like mad, just like the students in this year's workshop, and I'm looking for people to sponsor me in the second annual Clarion "Write-a-Thon."

Like all *-a-thons, the goal is to raise money to support the Clarion workshop which, every year, brings a group of budding authors together with established pros for six weeks of intense work on the craft and business of being a science fiction writer. Like most educational programs these days, it always needs financial help.

So, to do my part, I'm committing to crank out the final 30K words of my novel-in-progress, Fist of the Ape. And if you'd like to support me — really, support all the fantasy and science fiction writers who benefit from Clarion — you can make a donation on my Write-a-Thon page.

I know it's a long way to June. Don't worry. I'll be sure to remind you :)
