Procrastinating is not Acceptable: TheFtugal Editor Supports PEN America

I should have done this long ago. WhenI taught at a program at Antioch ‘s fellowship program offered to deserving writers.  When.I applied for a PEN xxx at no cost (unsuccessfully but happily!). My love of Russian literature finally convinced me. The recent danger of Belarusian authors and journalists finally convinced me.  I am a slow learner, but now I have the nerve to suggest you join me by in support of this organization. 

You might do it by contributing profits from one of your books, a marketing path I suggest in the flagship book of my #HowtoDoItFrugally Series of books. It is time. Modern History Press will be publishing the third edition of my The Frugal Editor. What better way to honor PEN—and alleviate my guilt. Not just part of proceeds!  All…

Won’t you join me. Just scroll for the convenient membership buttons.
