We are raising awareness and funds for 826 Valencia (http://826valencia.org/), a nonprofit dedicated to supporting under-resourced students with their creative and expository writing skills and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
How? We are writing a marathon! Our writing marathon is inspired by the National Novel Writing Month. Over the course of November, we will each tackle daily writing challenges and, in the end, have poetry collections, novels, and short story anthologies to share.Our marathons range from poetry to prose, word counts to page counts to timed writing. The overarching goal: write more, raise more.
As a bonus, should we meet our fundraising goal, 826 Valencia will make their writing lab / Pirate Store available for us to host a showcase where we will share our work with the world and everyone who helped us meet the fundraising goal (that’s you!)
With love and words,
Nicole, Arun, Sarah, Ani, Seif, Andy
