Every year, your generosity allows the Farpoint member community to make donations to local and national organizations providing so many important and needed services. The charities selected to receive donations from the 2011 Farpoint Charity Auction are:

Rude Ranch Animal Rescue and
Maryland Chapter, American Diabetes Association.

We will be taking donations for auction items from now up through the opening of the convention on Friday, February 18. You can make arrangements for donations by contacting us at trekcontact@comcast.net. We encourage you to let us know early about any donation you plan to give for the auction, as we will be publicizing and giving advance sneak previews of items on our website and blog.

Thank you for your continued generosity!

FARPOINT’S 1ST ANNUAL ALL-KINDS-OF-WRITING WORKSHOP with Howard Weinstein, Bob Greenberger, Dave Galanter & Bob Jones – Our writing workshop team has about a century’s worth of professional editing and writing experience between them! They’ll be sharing the fruits and frustrations of all that jazz with all interested writers at their [90-min…2 hour] workshop on Saturday. Since the basics of good writing and story-telling apply to
many formats, the workshop will cover TV/movie scripts, novels, short stories, comics — and even non-fiction,
too. No matter what your age or experience, if you want to be a writer — or want to be a better writer — here’s a
chance to ask questions and chat about the craft and business of writing for fun and profit!

Pre-registration is open now through our website, http://www.farpointcon.com
