|Lesley Marshall's input added depth to my manuscript.|
In memory of her son, every year Lesley raffles a critique with proceeds going to the Te Puna Women's Refuge. Participants from outside New Zealand could give money to their own local equivalent, and email Lesley confirmation of that - an Australian writer did that last year. The critique is for a novel or any similar piece of work, and the winner can send it any time in the next year, either on paper or by email. The costs for entries are as follows:
One chance = $NZ20; 3 chances $NZ30; 6 chances $NZ40; 10 chances $NZ50.
Proceeds have Created Joy for Women's Refuge
Lesley says the refuge gets very short of food during the festive season. "I think one year they used the money to create a children's playground for the families there, so you've all created a lot of joy with your entries. Thank you from both me and the refuge."
To invest in this very worthwhile raffle, email Lesley Marshall at Editline. The closing date is 5th January, 2011. Good luck!
