Thousand Word Thursday

Tonight’s goal is to write 1,000 words. Maybe you’ll only write 200. The point is, you don’t have to write alone.  Join us for light snacks and heavy whining – then it’s time to start writing!

Night of Writing Dangerously
Saturday, Nov. 18 from 6 to 11 p.m.

First floor
At a loss for words? Let us help you with plot ninjas, word sprints and other support.  Hang on tight – it’s a race to the finish during this wild night of writing!  Refreshments will be served.
