On September 7th, I am giving away the original master markup copy of “What Teachers Make,” and I will include a handwritten letter of authenticity. The money raised will allow young writers of color to attend “Your Word,” a teen writing residency held each summer at the Atlantic Center for the Arts.
Last year a special campaign provided scholarships for three inner-city teens from Cleveland and Milwaukee. But my goal of $10,000 will allow Your Word to give out five full scholarships to talented teen writers of color (African American and Hispanic). Help me make that happen.
One $10 raffle ticket (which you can purchase here if the widget below does not work) gives you one chance to win the manuscript, but I’m also giving away five first edition hardback copies of “What Teachers Make: In Praise of the Greatest Job in the World” and ten letterpress broadsides of “How Falling in Love is like Owning a Dog.”
