November is National Novel Writing Month, so whether you’ve been dreaming of writing a book someday or simply thrive on challenge, join thousands of participants worldwide in attempting to write 50,000 brand new words in thirty-ish days. This fun-packed, high energy course will guide you through the whole process: from vanquishing your inner editor and outlining your book (if that’s your style) to doing word sprints then racing toward the finish line. We’ll start with a Kick-Off Party where you’ll get a toolbox of things you’ll need to succeed, and end with an exhausted, thrilled “We Did It” celebration.
Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.
