This Meetup is past

18 people went


November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo (, an annual creative writing project that challenges you to write 50,000 words of a new novel over the course of the month of November.

Whether you've always been meaning to start a novel, or you've been kicking around an idea that you know would make a great story, or you used to write and haven't had time in ages...this could be a fun way to spark your imagination and unleash your inner bard. Best of all, you can tackle the challenge with friends to support and encourage you.

NaNoWriMo's website also gives you the chance to interact with other writers from across the world, and receive tips and advice from some of your favorite authors.

Even if you don't have the time to fully participate in a 50,000 word project, write-in sessions are a great way to put in a few hours of intensive writing in a group setting. Take on a short story, or just write an opening chapter!

These meetings are also a great chance to discuss your past experience, current progress or approach, ideas you've had, schedule write-in sessions, and anything else you need to help you succeed.

Please bring laptops or notebooks (depending on if you prefer to type or write by hand).

We'll be meeting in the John Marshall Meeting Room (we have the room until 5pm). There will be free wi-fi and power outlets available. There are also a number of great food options within a couple minutes distance, if people want to grab food during or after.
