The third annual 826 Valencia Write-a-thon is this coming weekend, Sunday, August 26.
Grab your pens and pencils, computer, or typewriter and head down to 826 for a full day of inspired, 826-powered writing. The event is a fundraiser for 826 Valencia’s free student programs and works not unlike any other walk — or mara — thons you may or may not have participated in: You gather pledges from friends and family and write until your brain or arms fall asleep, or until 8:26 PM.
On top of being a fundraiser the event is a great way to motivate yourself to put almost eight-and-a-half dedicated, focused hours towards any writing project you are working on, meet other writers (and Rumpus readers), and is a chance to win plush prizes, like your very own reading at 826 during the SF Lit Crawl. Plus, the event kicks off with a writing class taught by The Grotto from 12-1 PM.
