What we're about

The Columbus House of Scribes is dedicated to providing an open, friendly group to encourage your writing in whatever form it may take, as well as providing critiques for anything you would like to share, and writing voluntary monthly prompt responses as both writing exercises and to possibly spark new ideas. All writers, of any genre or format, are welcome to the Columbus House of Scribes!

Second Monthly Meetup

Online event

SPECIAL NOTICE: Due to CoVid-19, the Columbus Library has put a moratorium on meeting room use through the end of the pandemic. For this meeting, we will be using Zoom, a free-to-join online video conferencing platform. See details below. Discussion: We will discuss one or more predetermined topics this month related to our writing. There may or may not be time to cover all topics; this is okay! If there is a specific topic you would like to cover, email [masked] and we'll try to get it into a meeting in the near future. DISCUSSION 1: What have we all been working on recently? DISCUSSION 2: NaNoWriMo Prep! We will discuss tips, tricks, and the experience of writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Feel free to ask any questions you have! We're hoping that our members who have gone through this before will be available for those who are participating for the first time and don't quite know where to start, not only today but throughout the coming month. Daniel Morris is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

THE NOVEMBER 2020 PROMPT: Write about anything you want. Call it part of your NaNoWriMo. Share it with us, if you like. NaNoWriMo: By now, you are, theoretically, almost to the halfway point for your writing goal. Keep it up! We'll be talking about how to keep up your word count, or catch up if you've fallen behind. Daniel Morris is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

The end is near. Whether you blew past your word count weeks ago, or if you've spent the last month typing and deleting the word "the", there's still time to get your 50,000 words in! Why not share some of what you've been working on with the group? You can get some early feedback, and get a head start on revising and editing once the month is over! We can also talk about our experiences over the last month, and celebrate or commiserate with each other! Daniel Morris is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
