Welcome to the

Mighty Pens

Where we use our passion for writing to help others.

Thank you!

A huge thank-you to all our donors, fundraisers, participants, cheerleaders and donation-matchers! Because of you, we were able to exceed our goal of $10,000 raised for We Need Diverse Books!

We get to create and give back.

Writers who sign up for The Mighty Pens ask friends, family, colleagues, etc., to donate money when they hit specified word goals, kind of like how runners get each mile of a race sponsored, but we’re sprinting with words instead!

Since 2017, we have raised over $40,000 for different charities, including the Malala Fund and Every Mother Counts. Plus, we’ve collectively written millions upon millions of words! This year, we are hoping to pass $50,000—and we hope you’ll help us get there!


We write together during NaNoWriMo to meet our individual writing or editing goals.


As we add words to our manuscripts, we raise money from donors who have agreed to sponsor us!


When we hit word and fundraising milestones, we gain access to fun, helpful, and even valuable prizes!

We’re partnering with We Need Diverse Books, a 501(c)(3) non-profit and a grassroots organization of children’s book lovers. They advocate for essential changes in the publishing industry, to produce and promote literature that reflects and honors the lives of all young people.
