The Clarion West Writers Workshop has started their annual Write-a-thon fundraiser, and celebrated science fiction writer Michael Swanwick is offering the chance to appear in a Swanwick short-short for a paltry $10.
Michael has pledged to write a piece of flash fiction or a podcast every day of the workshop, and everyone who donates $10 or more to support him can ask that he include their name in one of the 42 stories. (This is a limited offer: he will write only 42 stories.)

Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked.
