2024 WRITE-A-THON | June 23 - August 3

Tips for Writers

As a writer, your mission is to set and accomplish a measurable writing goal for the summer, and line up friends, family and followers to support you in this effort. You can sign up and begin writing and getting sponsors any time, until the end of the Write-a-Thon. To help you and your sponsors track your progress, you'll begin by creating a "writer's profile page." This page gives your sponsors some information about you, shows your goals and how you're doing, lists your sponsors and your funds raised, and makes it easy to share on popular social networking sites as often as you like.

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