Clarion West Write-a-thon

Sponsor a writer

Clarion West Write-a-thon
June 21 – July 31, 2015

Together, we can help Clarion West bring new voices to the world of speculative fiction

Every year, people in our community commit to a summer tradition: to spend six weeks writing, editing, and submitting during the Clarion West Write-a-thon, our annual fundraiser. Your sponsorship means so much to our writers. Your donations help support them in their writing goals while helping the Clarion West Writers Workshop in its mission of serving emerging writers.

Sponsoring your writer is easy. Just pick one (or more!) writers from the list and go to their page to read all about their goals. Donate whatever amount suits your budget — $5/week, $20/week — or just a flat amount for the six weeks. You can also easily set up a recurring donation, if that works better for your budget. Any amount helps show your writer or writers that you support their goals.

You can also send checks to our office:

Clarion West
P.O. Box 31264
Seattle, WA 98103-1264

You can even make a single donation that sponsors several writers. Just donate to Clarion West using this PayPal link:

Then send an email to let us know how we should divide the sponsorship among participating writers.

Donations to Clarion West are tax deductible in the US. Clarion West is a nonprofit educational organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code; our Federal EIN is 91-1352168.
