Upcoming BWOC Events
Join us for a weekly NaNoWriMo Meetup for National Novel Writing month, the 30-day challenge to finish a writing project, with Instructor Asata Radcliffe. Traditionally, National Novel Writing Month has been specifically geared towards writers who want the challenge to finish a complete first draft of a novel in one month. However, NANOWRIMO has become a time that writers choose projects outside of novels to work on during the month November. Whether you want to crank out a novel, a memoir, a collection of poetry, or completing a revision, this one-month BWOC NaNoWriMo session is catered to all writing projects. The meetings will begin with an intro to NaNoWriMo followed by virtual “write-ins” once a week. Write-ins are writing times that we will write together in community. All sessions will have a moderator who will guide us through the writing sessions. Following signing up for this class, you will immediately receive instructions on how to set up your NaNoWriMo online portal.
