Blazing Laptops 2023


What: 16th Annual Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon

When: Sunday, May 21 from 9 AM - 3 PM

Where: Second floor of Lestat's Hillcrest

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 favorite 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 space, writing prompts for those who want them, plus fun 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 per person to join a team (minimum of three members). 
  • 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 May 21, join us at Lestat's Hillcrest for a fun and productive day of writing, featuring great prompts, lunch, and lots of exciting prizes!
