Join me in supporting SD Writers, Ink. SDWI is a fine non-profit that makes a difference for writers and students of all ages in our region. I love teaching there, and I have seen so many great projects come out of this one community of writers and teachers. I hope you can donate something toward this effort—even $5 helps!

ABOUT Blazing Laptops 2020

Welcome to Blazing Laptops 2020


WHAT: 13th Annual Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon

WHEN: Sunday, August 2, 2020 9:00am-4:00pm

WHERE: Virtually on Zoom!

Campaign Goal: $15,000.00


The Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon is THE big annual fundraiser for San Diego Writers, Ink. Writers seek pledges from sponsors to help raise money for San Diego's premier literary arts organization. So come on, BLAZE AWAY with us, or make a pledge to help SDWI continue to offer outstanding writing workshops, classes, read and critique groups, drop-in groups, literary events, and more!

We provide the virtual Zoom space, writing prompts for those who want them, plus fun Zoom activities. All of our pledges and participants write! 

All participants must either be sponsored for the minimum of $150 or pay that amount themselves in order to be a part of the experience. Incentives and prizes are given for people who raise the most money for SDWI.


How it works:

  • $150 minimum pledge to participate as an individual
  • $50 minimum pledge to join a team
  • Writers of all levels and genres are invited to write the day away. No experience necessary.
  • Register as a Blazing Laptops participant and create your personalized fundraising page
  • Set your sponsorship goal (we encourage you to shoot for $500 or more!), challenge your writing friends to do the same, and start telling everyone you know.
  • Our website has lots of tools to help you reach your goal. Get as many sponsors as you can by telling them how much SDWI means to you.
  • On August 2, Check-in virtually on Zoom for a fun and productive day of writing, featuring great prompts, breakfast and lunch, and lots of exciting prizes!

Please explore our FAQ for additional information.


Make a Pledge

Below is a list of registered participants. Any one of them would very much appreciate your support. Writers get a full day of writing in a supportive environment, SDWI gets funding to support year-long programming, and those who pledge know they supported a writer and an organization in making progress.  It's a win-win-win! A Donate Button will be available when you visit the participant's page.
