UPDATE! (September 6th 2019) –
See About Wadadli Pen for the history of the project.
Thanks to anyone who has supported the project through the years.
As for the future, the project needs help – financial and legal – if it’s going to push toward non-profit status and position itself to access grant funding and growth. Bottom line. If you can assist with either financial or legal support, pro bono, email wadadlipen at gmail dot com
As for the 2019 Challenge. As things stand now, I will be on timeout. If that changes, you will be informed. I’ll keep up with the blog updates but as for the Challenge, I’ll be taking a break and if the rest of the team opts to proceed independent of me, you will be informed. – Joanne C. Hillhouse, founder and coordinator, Wadadli Youth Pen Prize
