San Francisco Writers Conference: 2020 Auction

Update: bidding has ended.

This year I’m delighted to donate a basic website design package to the charity auction which accompanies the San Francisco Writers Conference. This annual conference is a wonderful celebration of craft, commerce and community.

I’ve attended numerous times; in 2020 I’m thrilled to see the auction beneficiary will be NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program.
