How to Write a Novel (In a Month) - SOLD OUT

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Event Details: 

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) challenges you to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. In this one-night class, you will create and develop characters, setting, and plot so that by midnight on November 1, you’ll be ready to write! We’ll brainstorm and do writing exercises to get your creative juices flowing, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet with other NaNoers who will help you stay motivated through the month.

Whether you’re planning to do NaNoWriMo for the first time this year or you’re an old NaNo veteran, this class will kick your imagination into overdrive, with enough NaNoMoJo to push you through the end of November!
