All published authors are invited to join Writers Unite to Fight Cancer (WUFC).
If authors do not live in an area where we hold our events, (mostly Phoenix and Tucson Arizona) they can still participate by having their books included in our on-line bookstore, and volunteering to judge entries for the writing contest and or edit entries in preparing them to be published in the Writing Contest Anthology.  Please email Margaret Turley at: writersunitetofightcancer@gmail.com for more information.
