About the Auction...

Thank you so much for your interest in the annual Writers for Hope Online Auction!


This event began in 2014 and is held every April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Each year, members of the publishing & entertainment worlds - editors, agents, producers, and published and/or agented authors and screenwriters contribute their time and resources to raise money to support survivors of sexual violence. Donations include work critiques (ranging from queries to FULL manuscripts), consultation calls or Skype sessions, and signed books.
