Please join us for our annual writing marathon fundraiser!
During the week of October 15—21, 2017 workshop leaders across the globe will bring groups together to Write Around the World and raise funds in support of AWA and its mission.
If you’d like to join as a writing workshop leader, please contact us or visit the event page for more information. If you’d like to write with a group near you, please see the growing list of participating workshop leaders below.
We are so grateful to everyone who participated in 2016! To read the writing that came out of last year’s marathon, please visit our blog.
