I read this post today from Marylin Warner on Things I Want to Tell My Mother. What a great idea. I really hope that some struggling writer/artist/mother, reads this and makes application to The Sustainable Arts Foundation without delay. Think how many lives can be changed. Just to have enough money to be able to attend a conference and meet other writers, or pay for child care, materials etc.
I imagine the excitement of a mother suddenly having the means to pursue her creative ambitions and Contagious Creativity really would describe what was going on and how the mother would feel at a conference.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention Marylin.
