A Note From Team Extended Metaphors (We Spell Well!)

The Flatiron Writers Room Spelling Team - AKA the EXTENDED METAPHORS (We Spell Well!) in the form of Susan Bridgers, Patricia Green, and Maggie Marshall, will be competing in the Literacy Council of Buncombe County's Annual Spelling Bee to raise money for this extraordinary organization! And yes we'll be wearing tiaras, sashes and tutus so y'all better come see us! And you can help us win: for every donation we can receive a lifeline hint: $25 buys us a word origin, $50 use the word in a sentence, and $100 will buy us an easier word!!! - with all donations going to the Lit Council. BONUS: Donate $5-25 and get a copy of Irons in the Fire: Stories from the Flatiron Writers! Donate $25+ and get our choice of another book from a selection of Malaprop's recent titles. We'll put the fun in fundraising with our spelling bee antics! Bee seeing you there! THANK YOU for your donations!
