This Sunday, the NY Writers Coalition is hosting its seventh annual Write-a-Thon at the Mark Morris Dance Center. The event is called “Write Your A** Off” and it works like this: You raise $150 and then you get to go to workshops with these people. The money you raise goes to support the coalition’s free creative writing programs for inmates, formerly homeless, substance abusers and other marginalized literary talents.
You don’t have to have a rap sheet to participate in Sunday’s workshops on yoga & writing, meditation & writing, and other things & writing (though nothing spices up a memoir like jail time!) We’re excited for lunch-time speaker Ira Glass, host of This American Life and top 10 smart-girl crush. Register for the Write-a-Thon here, then go raise a pile of money because the more you raise, the more likely you are to win a nice prize. Also, here’s the schedule.
