Carl Brandon Society ebook reader raffle

This month the Carl Brandon Society is raffling off five ebook readers -- two Nooks, two Kobos, and an Alex -- preloaded with books, stories, essays, and poems by such authors as Nisi Shawl, Ted Chiang, Saladin Ahmed, N. K. Jemisin,  Alaya Dawn Johnson, Terence Taylor, Shweta Narayan, Chesya Burke, Moondancer Drake, and Rochita Loenen-Ruiz.

Raffle tickets are $1 each, and may be purchased here. Proceeds go to benefit the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship, which helps writers of color attend the Clarion and Clarion West Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers' Workshops. More details about the raffle here. If you'd rather skip the drawing and donate money directly to the scholarship, check out the mailing address and PayPal button here.

Thanks so much for your signal boost, Matt!

One problem: the link only goes to Clarion Diego, and the scholarship fund benefits Clarion West as well. Sigh. You know I'm wearing two hats here. Any way, if you feel like changing what you posted to further inter-workshop harmony, here is a link to the CW site: www.clarionwest.org.

Many thanks for the heads up - I've enjoyed Butler's works for years, and am glad to see there's a scholarship in her name.
