Have you got a spare £600? If so you could do worse than hand it over to Plymouth author Tom Vowler.
Vowler is asking for people to fund his new short story collection Dazzling the Gods and is offering a stay at his home and an hour’s one to one writing tuition whilst you are there. Not only that he has even said he will cook for you, although whether that is a positive or not depends upon what you are expecting from a man who informs us “I’ll even cook for them, though they will probably have to share what I’m having.”
Tom has until the end of April to reach his target and his hoping for a late surge of support for his novel which is being crowdfunded through Unbound and there on his page you can see the various rewards he is offering for participating in the publication of his second short story collection.
