We have an incredible community. I mentioned this before about Pitch Wars, those amazing people who were willing to help total strangers with their writing. Everywhere I turn there is an abundance of goodwill and sheer awesomeness. And when I put the call out for Scrivathon raffle prizes, the community did not disappoint.

I want to hug every single one of our generous sponsors. They are amazing. The prizes they’ve donated are INCREDIBLE! I’ve listed them below, and there are still more to come. Keep an eye on the blog and on the twitter hashtag #scrivprize4sr for the rafflecopter raffle prizes. Some are live already, the rest will go live over the next couple of weeks.

All the raffle draws you can enter now are listed here. To enter, follow the instructions in the rafflecopter link on the blog post of each prize. Each donation to justgiving.com/scrivathon is eligible for one prize draw entry. You can make as many donations as you wish. Every dollar is appreciated.
