Final Challenge!

Week 6: Hit That Goal!

We have one more challenge for you. A generous donor has pledged $1500 USD if we can hit the full 100% funding goal by end of day Friday, July 29. If our essential fundraising community can get us to the $20,000 mark over the next week, we'll receive that $1500 above and beyond the final net. 

Will you help us raise the final $5,000 USD we need to hit our overall goal?

Thank you to all who are fundraising! Your generosity and your efforts ensure that we can offer programming like the Write-a-thon, free public and virtual events, and world-class instruction for emerging and underrepresented writers.

Flash Fiction Workshop Presenting

Sponsors is an online magazine and community site that covers science fiction, fantasy, and all the many related subjects that interest us as readers. We regularly publish new original short fiction from voices both new and legendary (and on very special occasions, both at once), as well as daily commentary on science fiction, fantasy, and related subjects from a wide range of writers from all corners of the field. Our aim is to explore, encourage, and enable interesting and rewarding conversations with and between readers.
