November is National Novel Writing Month, when a bunch of crazy people attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days, but more about that at http://nanowrimo.org.*
We offer regularly scheduled write-ins around Portland and environs year-round. Money raised through Portland NaNo will support 1) hosting of Portland NaNo at meetup.com, and 2) event expenses for Portland region events surrounding and during NaNoWriMo. Dues are $5 annually, with a 90 day free trial.
*Please note: This is not an official NaNoWriMo site, and the content has not been reviewed by National Novel Writing Month. For more information on National Novel Writing Month, visit www.nanowrimo.org.
