Team Coordinators are vital to Write a Book in a Day and we are here to support you every step of the way. To get you started we have prepared a checklist to help you register and prepare for your writing day.
Before registering, please note that the Team Coordinator must be a teacher, librarian or other supervising adult for all school teams. For Open Teams, please nominate a single Team Coordinator.
Step 1: It’s easy to get involved! Share the competition details with your school or writing group and inspire them to Write a Book in a Day.
Top tip: Writing takes place between 1 June and 30 September, so have a think about when this would fit best into the activity calendar.
Step 2: Register as a Team Coordinator for your school or open team. Registrations open 1 May, you can register as many teams as you like. The payment is $70 per team, payable before your writing date. All funds including registration fees and fundraising sponsorship go towards childhood cancer research on behalf of The Kids’ Cancer Project. Learn more here.
Step 3:Congratulations, you’re a Team Coordinator! Now that you have registered, you will receive an email with a log in to the Team Coordinator portal. The Team Coordinator portal is where you add your school/group details, add/remove teams, make payments, create an invoice, download parameters and upload your book at the end of the writing day.
Step 4:Select your teams At least one week before your writing day, you will need to enter in your team’s name and writer details. For each writer we require a first name, last name and email address. For students we request a parent or teacher’s email, for other writers please enter the best contact email for the participant.
