help uninsured writers deal with unexpected medical costs

Just learned something neat about funding the Emergency Medical Fund for SFWA, the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America organization: You don't need to be a member of the organization in order to donate to the EMF. The site has a donations page. It uses PayPal, so it's quick and easy - I just made a donation, and it only took about 10 seconds.

willshetterly writes, "I've let my SFWA membership lapse, but I hope to help the EMF until the US has universal health care." Help a writer without insurance pay for unforeseen medical bills by building this account (it's not a give-away but instead offers interest-free loans to those in need).

Good news!
