2022 WRITE-A-THON | June 19 - July 30

Tips for Teams

How do Clarion Write-a-Thon teams happen? Teams are self-forming. Once writers have either received or donated $20, they become eligible for team participation. Here's how it works:

  1. Decide whether you'd like to form a new team or join an existing one.
  2. To join an existing team... look through the list of teams at the top of the Browse Writers page. If you see a team you're interested in joining, contact us and we'll let the team leader know of your interest. Or we'll try to match you up with any team still seeking members.
  3. To create a new team... look through the list of writers on the Browse Writers page. You can also look at the list of eligible writers near the top of that page. If you see friends or classmates there you'd like to have on your team, contact them by email to discuss. If you don't have an email address for someone, contact us and we'll send a message in your behalf. If your favorite writing pals haven't signed up for the Write-a-Thon yet, encourage them to do so!
  4. Choose a name for your team and contact us to let us know your team has formed and to give us a list of members. Anyone who is not yet eligible will need to raise $20 before their name can appear on the team roster or a badge can be displayed on their page.
  5. Set up a Google group for easy discussion.

If you have any further questions, contact Justin Whitney at, or click the Feedback/Help icon at the top of any page.
