We are friends, co-workers, lovers, and writers brought together by the shared goal of writing more & raising money to support young writers.
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 poem collections, novels, and short story anthologies to share.
We are using this month to raise awareness - and money! - 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. And that’s where you come in: If we meet our fundraising goal, 826 Valencia will host a showcase for us in their Pirate Store where we will share our work with the world and everyone who helped us meet the fundraising goal (that’s you!)
Our marathons range from poetry to prose, word counts to page counts to timed writing. The overarching goal: write more, raise more.
With love and words,
Nicole, Arun, Sarah, Ani, Seif, Andy
