On Thursday, August 26, we’re going to write until our pencils break, our pens run out of ink, our fingers fall off, and our computers crash.
And you? You should join us. From noon until 8:26 PM on 8/26 Day, you can come to 826 Valencia and:
- Write a story. Or two. Or ten.
- Check out the madness as students, 826 volunteers, and passersby write and write and then write more.
- Sponsor a writer by making a donation at either a per-page rate or a set amount to support their furious, frantic, and fantastic writing!
Basically, it’s going to be the most extraordinary, productive, and glorious eight hours and twenty-six minutes of writing San Francisco has ever seen. It’s also a fundraiser. You can sign up in advance and get your friends, family, and your neighbor’s hairdresser’s dog-sitter’s cousin’s second-grade teacher to support you. So, go ahead — download the pledge form and get started!
All proceeds will benefit free student programming at 826 Valencia.
