Flying Pen Fundraiser?

Women Writing for (a) Change is considering the possibility of a Flying Pen fundraiser to parallel the Flying Pig Marathon in May. We want to know how much interest there might be within this community, for those who will run/walk the Pig and also those who would be interested in a "writing marathon."

Please contact Mary Wood-Constable, mwoodconstable@women writing.org if interested, intrigued, or with questions or comments. Thank you!
