The Neighborhood Story Project (NSP) is hosting its first annual Write-a-Thon, the first Write-a-Thon in the history of New Orleans. The NSP will be raising money to finish masterpieces by John McDonogh students that are two-and-a-half years in the making.

Tom Piazza and Eric Lois Elie, two of the writers of the new HBO series "Tremé," will be participating, and Elie will offer free consultations to participating writers. All Write-a-Thoners will be fed by The Joint BBQ.

During the five years since the organization’s inception, the NSP has published 8 best selling books, and provided royalties exceeding $25,000 to their writers. In March, the NSP released The House of Dance & Feathers: A Museum by Ronald W. Lewis with a blow-out party at the museum in the Lower 9th Ward. The NSP has grown tremendously in five years, and continues to tell the stories of our neighborhoods. To donate to the NSP’s first annual Write-a-Thon, visit or send checks to P.O. Box 19742, New Orleans, LA 70179.
