Galleycat points us to a Newsday profile of Rona Jaffe, who parlayed some change from her very successful writing career into a foundation that supports young women writers:
Now, for the 10th year, Jaffe is sharing a bit of her own best of everything - from her own pocket. Tomorrow evening, she'll award $10,000 each to six women at the beginnings of their writing careers. The Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Awards, Jaffe says, are intended to help not-yet-established writers hire baby-sitters, travel, take a break from jobs or do whatever they need to write.
