Every year, artist Lee Moyer creates a calendar of literary pin-up art to raise money for the Clarion speculative fiction writing workshop. (Check out some of last year's images here.) And it's not too late to give your contributions to this year's Indiegogo campaign! There are three days late to donate $25 or more, and get yourself a stunningly beautiful calendar.
