Worldbuilders has an annual fundraiser for Heifer International. This year if you donate through Team WriMo, you can be entered into a lottery for prizes that would appeal to WriMos! Especially WriMos who have manuscripts that need some dusting off.
These WriMo Exclusvies include:
- $500 raised: One Critique by Douglas Hulick. Douglas has been a member of a writer’s group (the Wyrdsmiths) for over 20 years, so he knows critiquing. He will offer a critique for up to 10,000 words, and will include both in-text comments as well as an overall discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the submission.
- $1,000 raised: One critique by The Wyrdsmiths. 7 writers (all pros) will critique a manuscript and include a recorded audio critique session as well as a manuscript mark-up. More info to come on this one!
- $1,5000 raised: One Critique by Téa Obreht. Author Téa Obreht will happily critique up to 15,000 words of fiction—either short stories or a novel-in-progress or a totally amazing combination of both—and provide written commentary within 90 days of submission.
In addition to these WriMo Exclusives, there are of course lots of other prizes your lottery tickets will qualify for through Worldbuilders!
For more information on how to donate and enter this lottery visit the WriMo’s for Worldbuilders fundraising page.
The last day to donate is December 15, 2014, so don’t wait too long!
