Don’t miss The Common’s annual author postcard auction! Bid for a chance to win a postcard from your favorite writer, handwritten for yourself or a person of your choice. Past years’ authors have gone above and beyond in creating their postcards, penning long letters or including drawings of recipients’ dogs.
Postcards will be written and mailed in time for the holidays! Makes a great gift – choose who the postcard goes to, and have it personalized for them.
Online bidding for the 2018 Postcard Auction will be open to the public at 8 a.m. EST on November 15, 2018, and will close at 7 p.m. EST on November 29, 2018. This year’s participants include David Sedaris, André Aciman, Carmen Machado, and Viet Thanh Nguyen, among others.
All proceeds will go toward The Common’s programs. These include publishing emerging writers, mentoring students in our Literary Publishing Internship Program, and connecting with students around the world through The Common in the Classroom.
