What You Should Know about WEAF and Why It Needs You
from By Paula Dranov
I hope you never need financial aid from ASJA's Writers Emergency Assistance Fund, but you would be surprised at the well-known, well-established writers who have asked for help. We recently awarded $4,000 (WEAF's maximum grant these days) to a National Magazine Award winner with amazing credits who had been unable to work because he and his wife had been focused for more than a year on helping his mother-in-law, a cancer patient, through an all-encompassing and harrowing legal battle that sucked up all their available assets and left them deep in debt.
