The Night of Writing Dangerously Write-a-thon

Our annual Night of Writing Dangerously is a mid-month extravaganza of food, drink, and lots and lots of noveling.

Why should you plan to fundraise and attend in 2016? Because we want to write with you and celebrate the incredible power of creativity!

Plus, proceeds from the evening make our programs possible, including the classroom-based Young Writers Program.

A panorama of the Night of Writing Dangerously

In 2015, 301 dangerous writers raised over $56,000—money we’ve used to fund and improve our events. All attendees of the 2015 Night of Writing Dangerously also received:

  • A tote bag inspired by the sleek and dangerous 2015 poster designed by Andy Gregg, filled with books and other treats from our sponsors.
  • Coffee from Atlas Coffee!
  • A life-altering amount of encouragement, inspiration, and writerly mojo.
  • Dinner, and a multitude of snacks, including a fully stocked candy buffet!
  • Free drinks from our open bar including beer, wine, and specialty cocktails like the Noveltini and Cosmonovelton.
  • A chance to get your author photo taken by professional photographer, Ken Goudey.

And more!
