a write-a-thon is like a marathon, but instead of running, you write! Here’s how you can participate:

1) find a sponsor
Grab a sponsor who will pledge money in your name either by the hour or as a set amount.

Need a sponsor? Ask friends, family and anyone else you think would be interested to support your participation.  Don’t know how to ask? We’ve got you covered with a handy Sponsor Letter.

2) register your interest
Register through Eventbright and we will add you to our writers list and contact you with further information.

3) finally, turn up on the day and have fun –  all in a good cause!
thank you for participating!
