Help Support Young Genre Writers

The Alpha SF/F/H Workshop for Young Writers is a ten-day workshop for speculative fiction writers aged 14-19 at the University of Pittsburgh’s Greensburg campus. At Alpha, students write and revise a short story, give and receive critiques, work with professional authors , and form friendships that often last for years.

This year, the requests for financial aid exceed the scholarship fund by several thousand dollars and they’re raising money to help bridge the gap. The Alpha class of 2009 created a picture book called Ned and Jane, which they’re giving away in return for donations of $5 or more. Here’s a video to help promote the effort:
