Please support Paediatrics at the Canberra Hospital (PatCH) by sponsoring the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild’s Write-a-Book-in-a-Day contest entry in 2013.
Last year, through the generosity of our sponsors, CSFG raised over $600 for PatCH. (You can find out more about last year’s escapade here.)
And now we’re doing it again!
The Write-a-Book-in-a-Day contest is a fundraising event for state children’s hospitals that runs from April to August each year. It began in Perth in 2003 and has since expanded across Australia. Teams of 5-10 writers are given 12 hours to collaboratively plan, write, illustrate, print and bind a book (of around 8000 words in the Open category, less in the schools categories).
PatCH also came into being in 2003 to provide a clear and unifying identity for the paediatric health services at the Canberra Hospital. PatCH consists of several clinical areas; a 40 bed inpatient ward including a separate adolescent area, a Day Stay/Surgery unit, Outpatient Clinics and the Administration and Research areas.
CSFG will be writing our 2013 book in a day on Sunday, 4th August.
