May 16, 2009 is the 4th Annual Write-a-Thon!

Join us Saturday, May 16th, and write by the seat of your pants for a great cause!

Sign-up is easy! Just click here to register.

Writers of all genres and levels of experience are welcome; we believe that everyone has a voice and a story, and Write-A-Thon activities are geared for everyone. You can use the day however best serves your writing needs; write on your own, participate in workshops, or receive fun and stimulating prompts from our "prompt stations."

As a Write-a-Thon participant you will:

As NYWC's generous, passionate and dedicated supporters go the distance with us on May 16, much-needed funds will be raised and, at the same time, we'll witness once again the vital way that writing contributes to - and draws from - community.

Create your own personal Write-a-Thon page and ask friends and family for support and pledges.
 
Like a walk-a-thon, our attendees will ask friends and family to donate in support of their day of writing. These contributions will help fund NYWC's creative writing programs for at-risk youth, the homeless and formerly homeless, the formerly incarcerated, seniors, and many others that aren't heard from often enough in our society.
