[Writing] Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund

Okay, I know you all were probably relieved not to see any posts relating to Octavia's passing for several weeks, but Vonda passed along a SFWA press release that I think other writer-sorts might be interested in.

Basically, this scholarship is to enable speculative fiction writers of color (who are still far rarer than you'd think) to attend one of the Clarion workshops that were so near and dear to Octavia's heart. Contributions are tax-deductible, and it's something she would definitely have approved of. If you were one of her friends, one of her students, or heck, just liked her books, maybe consider contributing.
