Most of you know that I am the webmistress for the Indiana University-South Bend Creative Writing Club. If you’ve not heard, we are trying to raise funds so we can attend the Association of Writers and Writing Programs annual conference in late February 2014. The conference changes cities every year, and this conference will be held in Seattle, Washington.
The money we raise will be to help us cover travel expenses and lodging. We held a fireworks fundraiser for the 4th of July holiday, but as anyone who lives in Northern Indiana can tell you, the weather refused to cooperate. Now we’re starting a new fundraising event and you don’t have to live in Northern Indiana to help up out.
Brandy Bohm, Vice-President of the CWC, is holding a Perfectly Posh event from July 22nd until July 28th. Perfectly Posh is a line of spa and pampering products that are not tested on animals. Brandy is donating 100% of the proceeds to the AWP fund for the club. There is a Facebook event page if you would like more information and you can go the the Perfectly Posh website to see their catalogue of products. They make excellent gifts, as well. If you are not local, Brandy will ship your orders to you. This is a one week only event and every penny counts, so please consider pampering yourself or someone you love (or yourself and someone you love) and help this great group of writers attend this professional conference. After the event closes, we will randomly select one person to receive an autographed copy of my book Celia from Rainstorm Press. We will choose two other names to receive 3 Celia bookmarks. They’re high quality and very shiny. You’ll like them. Celia has a 4.8 star rating on Amazon.
We appreciate all of your help. And as a little added incentive, if we reach our goal as a result of this event, I will randomly select one person to be a character in my current work-in-progress, Enraptured.
