Write-a-Thon Team: Witches' Insurance Agency
Speculative fiction author. Published in Lightspeed, Nightmare, and several Best of the Year anthologies. Octavia E. Butler Scholar of Clarion 2016. Shirley Jackson Award nominee. Amherst Writers and Artists writing workshop leader. Queer romance author Kaseka Nvita. Geeky. Curious. Weird.
Whatever strikes my fancy. Generally speculative fiction, more specifically urban fantasy; generally LGBTQIA romance; generally novelettes and novellas...but I have been known to write flash fiction, short stories, essays, songs, poetry, comics, and films as the spirit moves me.
Write at least 100 words per day, 5 days a week, for the 6 weeks of Clarion & the Write-a-Thon: 30 days total.
My goal is to raise at least $100 through this Write-a-Thon. Please pledge and/or donate; even the smallest amount will help a future writer attend and flourish! ^_^ I went to Clarion through the Octavia E. Butler Scholarship, and I am so grateful for the ease of the financial strain of tuition that the scholarship gave me! Not everyone is eligible for that scholarship, however, which is why it's so important to me that we raise money for other scholarships through this Write-a-Thon. Clarion helps so many people not only improve as writers, but gain important contacts in the speculative fiction industry. The more people who can attend Clarion because the cost of tuition is lowered, the more people who will benefit from this marvelous workshop.
Alas, the Clarion Write-a-Thon has ended, with $7,175.73 raised so far! However, we are still accepting donations. Thank you for your support!
