A Write-a-thon is like a marathon, but instead of running, you write! Here’s how you can participate:

1) find a sponsor
Grab a sponsor who will pledge money in your name either by the hour or as a set amount.

Need a sponsor? Use this document (coming soon) to help you ask friends, family and anyone else you think would be interested to support your participation.
Keep track of your support using this form (coming soon), which will also serve as your entrance ticket to the Write-a-thon event in November 2017.

2) register your interest
Send us your name at glassmountaineditors@gmail.com and we will add you to our writers list and contact you with further information.

3) Finally, turn up on the day and have fun –  all in a good cause!
Thank you for participating!
