Labor Day Raffle of the original "What Teachers Make" edited manuscript

.
-
On September 7th, I am giving away the original master markup copy of "What Teachers Make," a handwritten letter of authenticity, and several unpublished chapters and rough drafts. There are several other prizes besides this grand prize. The money raised will allow young writers of color to attend "Your Word," a teen writing residency held each summer at the Atlantic Center for the Arts.
ACA Teen Writer of Color Scholarship
During the summer of 2013 I taught a two-week teen poetry workshop at The Atlantic Center for the Arts as part of a program called Your Word. The students were fantastic, and ACA had done a pretty good job of diversifying the student body. I want to help them do more.

Last year a special campaign provided scholarships for three inner-city teens from Cleveland and Milwaukee. But my goal of $10,000 will allow Your Word to give out five full scholarships to talented teen writers of color (African American and Hispanic).

Help me make that happen.
