  • Word Sprints


What is it?

An annual writing challenge that happens every November, worldwide.

Why participate?

Studies show that writing among peers results in a higher word count and greater focus.

Why does it work?

Fun and community motivate us to see writing as enjoyable and creates accountability for results.

What do I need?

Whatever you want to write with: a laptop, pad and paper, you name it!

What happens during these events?

  • Work on any project-- fiction, class project, poetry, research
  • Writing in a space dedicated to focus and community
