Heads up -- auction to help Fen of Color get to Wiscon


Just wanted to let this community know about the con_or_bust community auction, to help SF/F Fen of Color get to wiscon . Both because I think it's the sort of thing Octavia Butler would have supported, and because wonderful books by writers of color are on auction (among other cool things).

Excess money raised in the auction goes to the Carl Brandon Society, who do a lot of work to promote sf/f writers of color. They also administer the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship, which sends one writer of color to each of Clarion and Clarion West each year. It's thanks to them that I attended Clarion in 2007.
