Last year we held Writer Unboxed’s first auction. The proceeds of the auction went to support our infrastructure, prizes for our fun contests, and extras like starting the Writer Unboxed newsletter, Writer Inboxed. The intent is to expand our offerings to help strengthen the WU community and bring you useful, empowering information about the craft and business of writing fiction.
We’re giving it another go this year, and hope that by doing this fundraiser, we give you the opportunity to promote your projects while helping us cover some of our costs.
What’s up for auction?
- One Skyscraper ad opportunity on the main site, Writer Unboxed, including design services by our ad guru.
- One horizontal banner ad (~590 x 390 pixels) in Writer Inboxed, our newsletter that circulates to over 2,000 engaged readers, designed by our ad expert.
- Our first-ever Take 8, which is an opportunity to share your project via a meaty Q&A conducted by WU mama’s, Therese and Kathleen
If you’ve donated to us in the past, please know that we are more grateful than words can express. Your continued support enables us to continue, and expand projects in ways you know about–and ways we are in the process of developing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
When does it begin?
Mark your calendars. The auction will take place in its entirety on Wednesday, January 30th, closing at 8 p.m. EST.
