You can find them using the search feature on the "Sponsor a Writer" page. Writers are listed in alphabetical order by first name. You may want to confirm with your writer to find out if they are using their public name, a nickname, or a pseudonym.
2. Is there an easy way to sponsor several writers?
Yes! Click any of the “Donate” buttons on the Write-a-thon site, and follow the directions in the "Sponsor Multiple Writers" field to tell us how to distribute your donations. Due to the limitations of the form, please limit your split to 10 names. Alternatively, you can send a check with a note by post to Clarion West, P.O. Box 31264, Seattle, WA 98103-1264.
3. Are Write-a-thon donations tax-deductible?
Yes! Clarion West is a nonprofit educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal EIN 91-1352168). Clarion West mails a thank-you letter that can be used as a tax receipt in the U.S. For donations up to $100, or for donors who do not provide a postal mailing address, we send the thank-you letter via email.
4. Where can I find special offers from participants?
Not every participant is able to offer special promotions, but some do, and you don’t want to miss out! Every year, our community comes up with dozens of unique challenges and opportunities. Tuckerizations! Postcards from your writer! Matching donations! Writing critiques! Class challenges!

5. Can I send checks directly to Clarion West instead of donating through the site?
Of course! You can send checks payable to Clarion West with a note about sponsoring the Write-a-thon and the writers you wish to support:
