And so meet my new love…Wordstock.
I’ve been honored to become a new board member of this inspiring literary art and education organization that not only puts on the kick-ass Wordstock literary festival, but uses the power of writing to effect positive change in people’s lives by getting writing education into the K-8 Portland Public Schools that need it most (face it...all of them).
I’m introducing my new love (Wordstock) to my old love (Running) in a special fundraiser for the Wordstock April Membership drive.
I will be running the Eugene Half-Marathon on April 29th, 2012. If you love books, writing, kids, Portland Public Schools, the Wordstock festival, running, or me, please consider a donation to Wordstock on my behalf.
The $35 O.Henry membership will get you a two day pass to the next festival (October 13-14 at the Oregon Convention Center)
The $120 Booker level membership will get you festival passes, invitations and priority seating for other Wordstock events throughout the year, and a free one-year subscription to the literary Tin House Magazine.
Or you can just give $$$ in any amount. ($5/mile, $10/mile, see?)
Thank you for your support. If you are in Eugene, look for a running momma in a bright red cap.
