My friend, the Maine cartoonist Jeff Pert, who died unexpectedly in April, will have a memorial fund in his name.
Jeff had told me about the summer of 2006, when he was selected to attend the Odyssey Writing Workshop in New Hampshire. It was an immersion into a world of creativity that made an impact on him.
The Jeff Pert Memorial Fund is now accepting donations to help finance the appearance of a guest lecturer at a future Odyssey Writing Workshop.
Donations to the fund can be made at sff.net/odyssey/donations.html, or by mail: Odyssey, P.O. Box 75, Mont Vernon, N.H., 03057. Specify that the donation should go to the Jeff Pert Memorial Fund.
My thanks to Jon Pert, Jeff's brother, for letting me know about this.
