Offered: Edit of Five Thousand Words by Chuck Wendig

What You Are Bidding On:

Chuck Wendig offers to take a hatchet and scalpel to 5,000 words of your fiction -- all of a short story or part of a novel -- and cut it into bloody, tattered ribbons and then burn it in the cleansing fires of a harsh but loving edit.

Minimum Bid: 


How to Bid:

In the comment section, leave a message with the amount you are bidding. We ask that you pledge in whole dollar increments ($1, $5, etc), and in US funds. Remember to only bid what you'll be able to commit to.

Bidding is open until February 25, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. PST (8:00 p.m. EST) so check back on your favorite auctions and bid often!

When the auction has closed, we'll email you about your winning status. We ask that you donate directly to Crestline Elementary (payment options will be forwarded) and send us the receipt as verification. If we haven't heard back from you within forty-eight hours, we'll send one more email (check your spam folders) and if nothing is heard twenty-four hours after that, we'll move to the next highest bidder.
