The Fresno 15 project

The Fresno 15 Creative Writing Marathon is an all-volunteer online publishing project organized by the Fresno State Creative Writing Alumni Chapter.

The project features award-winning Fresno writers in a creative writing challenge and fundraiser to benefit the alumni chapter’s Larry Levis Creative Writing Memorial Scholarship. Volunteer authors run a “literary marathon,” writing 15 pieces in 15 days, while the rest of us “sponsor” and encourage them as they write.

Next marathon: October 2020, featuring authors Sara Borjas, Sarah A. Chavez, and Juan Luis Guzmán.
