We will do whatever it takes to help you live life as fully as you can


Green Ink Sponsored Write brings together published authors and developing writers to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Reflecting Macmillan's mission of quality of life for everyone affected by cancer, writers are sponsored for their time, not their word-count. A world-exclusive anthology of material created in the Sponsored Write will be emailed to everyone who donates BEFORE THE END OF THE WRITING DAY, arriving in inboxes 48 hours after it's written.  

The 2023 Sponsored Writers are Isabella Barbieri, Charlotte Bond, Dan Coxon, Alex Davis, Sarah Dodd, Jim X. Dodge, John-Paul Flintoff, Lucy-Anne Holmes, Marianne Izen, Roz Kaveney, Penny Jones, Rachel Knightley, Nic Lamont, Alison Littlewood, Laura Mauro, Lisa Morton, Katharine Orton, Kenny Reid, JJ Shippen, Jennifer Steil, Liam Sweeny, Vanessa Thompsett,  Steve Toase and Aliya Whiteley. Title selected by Paul Tremblay and anthology design is by Steve J. Shaw of Black Shuck Books. 

Writing will begin at 10.30am on 14 October and end at 5.30pm (with a break for lunch!). The writers then have 24 hours to edit their work and email it to Writers' Gym HQ to be turned into an anthology for our sponsors. 

In 2022 we raised £1867. In 2021 we raised £3493. In 2020 we raised £3713. We'd love it if you could help us smash these totals for this amazing charity. 

If you're donating in support of a particular sponsored writer, or in memory of a friend or family member, please do share your story in comments on the Justgiving page. Macmillan gives people with cancer everything they’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are Macmillan’s worries. Macmillan’s doing whatever it takes.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and secure. Your details are safe, JustGiving - they'll never sell them or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs.
