Call for Book Donations for raise money for Anthology of Student Writing, MA in Writing, Warwick Uni
Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/english/postgrad/current/masters/writing/
The Ma in Writing students are producing an Anthology of their writing. In order to do so, we need to raise enough money to cover all costs incurred. If we don't raise enough, we can't ahead. Simple as that. So we need lots of fundraising ideas and activities.
One idea is to contact writers and publishers and see if they would be able to donate any books - especially signed ones - to help us raise some money.
These are some examples of how the books may be used to raise money:
1) help sell pre-order vouchers - at each event where vouchers are sold, a book will be offered as a prize in a prize draw
2) if possible, and if we manage to get some big names involved, we may be able to auction books
3) books may be offered as raffle prizes
4) any excess books may be sold at launch or other fundraising events
Are there any writers and publishing houses out there willing to donate some books to us? Please help us if you can!
We will try to credit everyone who's made donations even if it's a general 'thank you' rather than a specific mention (which we'll do if there's enough space!).
Many thanks to the generosity of those who have donated already.
