Writers, it’s time to sharpen your pencils, refill your fountain pens, or warm up those keyboards. Join hundreds of other writers around the globe for our annual Clarion write-a-thon, now open for registration.
What is a write-a-thon?
Like a walk-a-thon, except for writing! Participants can be pledged by the word, chapter, or story. Finish that novel you’ve been working on. Write and submit new short stories. Try your hand at writing speculative poetry. The goal is up to you.
The six-week event mirrors the Clarion Writers’ Workshop, running from June 23rd to August 3rd. Write and/or pledge to show your support for the latest batch of students, chosen from among hundreds of applicants, as they learn from some of the best writers and editors in our field.
Who can join?
The write-a-thon is open to everyone, whether you’re just getting started or you’re a seasoned pro. Previous attendance of Clarion is not required.
What does the money raised from donations and pledge go to?
All funds raised during the write-a-thon go to the Clarion Foundation, whose express purpose is to support the Clarion Writers’ Workshop, financially and strategically, in providing a high quality educational experience for aspiring writers.
