Calling All Wordsmiths!

February 3, 2015

If you’re going a little stir-crazy with all the snow out there, put your time and your pencil to good use by joining our 2015 Write-A-Thon!

From February 23rd through April 8th
, volunteers, students, journalists, bloggers–anyone who can hold a pencil–will come together to raise $20,000 in support of our free youth programs. Writers set a page goal, seek pledges per page or flat rate donations, and write anything they want for six weeks (from dive-bar menu sestinas to space travel postcard haikus), all while raising funds for 826 Boston. Since all writing is done from the comfort of your own home, you don’t have to live in Boston to participate–just love 826 Boston and help spread the word!

We’ll host a series of events, from write-ins and live readings to concerts and dance parties, to celebrate participants’ writing and their hard work fundraising for 826 Boston.

If you want to help shape these events or lead the charge in fundraising, join the events committee by dropping us a line. Email the event coordinator, Kristen Evans, to find out more or to join our team.

Don’t forget to register for the event today!
