Write-A-Thon

A Fun-filled Fundraiser

at University of Houston’s

Roy G Cullen Building

 

Join us for our annual fundraiser benefiting the Boldface Conference for Emerging Writers. Each November we host a day of packed with writing prompts, craft talks and raffle prizes that include manuscript consultations, Kindle readers and much more! All money raised directly benefits the Boldface Conference.

Write-­A­-Thon is not your typical boring fundraiser. It simply couldn’t be when you combine contests, challenges, prizes, food, and writing in a day-long event – what more could an emerging writer ask for? As well as all the fun you have, you will be investing in the development of Houston’s literary community on a grassroots level.

After all, Glass Mountain magazine was created to provide a venue for emerging writers from across the world to present their work. One way we foster the development of emerging writers is by hosting the Boldface Conference each May. Our conference provides space for students from all over the country to find and develop their voice through craft talks, workshops, readings, open mic events, and private consultations with established writers. It allows mentoring relationships to develop and helps new writers build a community that lasts well beyond the end of the conference.

A conference experience such as this normally costs hundreds of dollars. We are able to bring this opportunity to students and emerging writers for a fraction of that cost thanks to Write­-A­-Thon.

But, Write-A-Thon wouldn’t be possible without two things: writers and donations.  You can sign up to be a writer or sponsor a writer­­, here!
