NY Writers Coalition's annual Write-A-Thon is a daylong fundraiser and writing retreat all in one. Prior to the pandemic, participants gathered in person in NYC and used the day however they liked: to generate new material in group NYWC workshops, revise or continue working on existing projects, free write, or any combination of those activities. Write-A-Thon also featured a lunchtime keynote from a contemporary writer today. Past Write-A-Thon speakers have included Libba Bray, Lisa Brennan-Jobs, Jessica Bruder, Nicole Dennis-Benn, Ira Glass, Mira Jacob, Vijay Seshadri, Colson Whitehead, and many more incredible writers. Since the advent of the pandemic, we've moved Write-A-Thon online—but still offer several generative workshop opportunities and a keynote address.
