|Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to all our friends! We hope that 2013 will be a fulfilling and prosperous year for you and for your writing.
A new year is a traditional time for resolutions. We may not keep them all but they are worthy goals, nonetheless. One resolution we would love for you to keep is to donate something—anything you can—to WEAF. The Writers Emergency Assistance Fund is a ASJA-sponsored but separate entity that offers financial help to writers who aren't enjoying that prosperous time we all seek. Since 1982, WEAF has awarded more than 160 grants totaling approximately $400,000.
WEAF helps established freelance writers who, because of advanced age, illness, disability, a natural disaster, or an extraordinary professional crisis are unable to work. A writer need not be a member of ASJA to qualify for a grant.
WEAF is administered through the Charitable Trust of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, which has 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status. Contributions are fully tax-deductible, and can be made online or by check. Click here for more information about WEAF.
