Call for support: Get local writer Corinne Litchfield to Galax, VA
Have you read Corinne Litchfield’s feature on Sacramento’s literary scene is in the May issue of Sacramento Magazine? Corinne is a freelancer and fiction writer and proud supporter of our local writing community, has been awarded First Place in the 2012 California Writers Club Sacramento Short Short Fiction Contest! Help her celebrate by supporting her with a contribution to her novel project! Corrine’s novel, The Girl from Galax, needs some research, and she’s asking for help by May 19 in raising the remaining $880 she needs to get to Galax. The Girl from Galax is “a coming-of-thirty story about Belle Mackey, a small town waitress with big city ideas. When she meets a music producer from California, she gets the courage to leave Galax in search of new adventures.”
