Writing Series: NaNoWriMo - Boost Your Word Count

Join us for a bi-monthly Writing Series at Word After Word Books!

**Due to the holiday, the November sessions will take place on the FIRST and THIRD Wednesdays of the month: November 6th and November 20th. Mark your calendars!**

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is HERE, and some of you have signed up (and hopefully already begun) to write your novel! This first week of NaNo is all about gaining momentum to carry you through the rest of the month, so we'll work on prompts and exercises that will help us develop our stories and add to those word counts!

Remember, you don't have to be participating in NaNoWriMo to join our sessions this month, nor do you even have to commit to write the full 50,000. I guarantee that if you sign up, or simply come to a session or two, you'll end up writing more in the month of November than you have written in a long time. NaNoWriMo is about making writing a priority for an entire month, and that's exactly what we're going to do!

Regardless of whether or not you plan to participate in NaNoWriMo this year (although we highly recommend it!), our NaNoWriMo Prep sessions are beneficial for all writers. Join us!

Writing sessions are held in the store every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, (unless otherwise specified), from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and will focus on building writing practice through prompts, writing exercises, and shared readings.

Sessions will incorporate general writing practice with timed prompts and reading out loud (always voluntary), as well as at least one writing exercise every session, varying based on the theme. Themes include character building, description, grammar, word play, short stories, memoir, etc. We'll do something new each week!

We invite special guest authors and writers to lead occasional sessions, so if you know someone who might be interested, of if you would like to lead a session yourself, please contact us at the bookstore!

Sessions are $15 in advance or $20 at walk-in. Want to save money by attending more than one session? Purchase a 4-pack and attend any four sessions of your choice (they do not have to be consecutive) for just $50!
