Thank you so much for the clarification about Friends of Denis. I've been attending Wiscon for about six years now, and this time was the first I'd heard of Friends of Denis.

When I got the idea for Rosie's Wiscon, everyone I talked to said, "Oh, but there's the scholarship and Friend's of Denis; don't you think you'll just be duplicating effort?"

So far, Rosie's Wiscon is three women who feel passionate about getting more working class folk to Wiscon -- me (Lisa Geoffrion), a_phoenixdragon at LiveJournal (Mandy) and [personal profile] kaffyr (Kathy).

We really haven't been sure about how we want to structure everything. So far, all we have is an empty paypall account. The obvious move would be to become a 501(c)3 with an overseeing board, or join up with an organization that would have us.

When the idea first came to me, I just had in mind a (online) coffee can in the kitchen that I'd pitch money into ever payday.

Suggestions are welcome!
