Hello, everyone. It has now been just over one week since the second installment of The Fresno 15 Creative Writing Marathon ended. While we did not meet our ambitious $5,000 goal, our alumni chapter is very pleased with the results: $3,380 in donations from 51 unique donors, or 67% of our goal. These funds will go directly toward building our Larry Levis Creative Writing Scholarship endowment.
We can't thank all of you enough!
Shouts out to our supporters from the last week or so of the campaign:
Becky Brown, Leticia Reyna Cano, Sirley Carballo, Honora Chapman, Ethan Chatagnier, Kathy Fagan, Marti Fredericks, Corrinne Hales, Sergio La Porta, Kate McKnight, Tanya Nichols, Michele Poulos, Robin Russin, Jackie Ryle, Tim Skeen, Brian Turner, Tom Uribes, and 2 anonymous donors.
Biggest thanks go to our three alumni authors -- Sara Borjas, Juan Luis Guzmán, and Sarah A. Chavez -- for sharing their incredible poetry and prose with us throughout the marathon. If you missed any of their work, visit FresnoWriters.com to enjoy it anytime.
We will be in touch with you again in the spring to give you our 2020 annual report. Thank you,
-- Jefferson Beavers, on behalf of the Creative Writing Alumni Chapter organizing committee
