This is Point303's fourth annual Sponsored Write for Macmillan Cancer Support - and our first NEW WRITING SHOWCASE!

Authors, playwrights, poets, academics and storytellers in London and Bath will be writing in cafes on Friday 13 September. They are sponsored for the hours they do - what they write is up to them. Because Macmillan is all about Quality of Life (our optional theme).

Then, on Saturday 14 September, be the first to sample the new work generated by the Sponsored Write, performed by professional actors in the gorgeous Reading Room of the Grange pub and dining room, Ealing.Tickets are £8 of which at least £5 goes to Macmillan Cancer Support (the rest goes on expenses - we're all volunteers and the Grange are giving us the gorgeous Reading Room for free).

Whether you're sponsoring a particular writer or actor, or just know what a great cause Macmillan Cancer Support is, please share your story below (Your donation can be anonymous if you wish).
