NaNoWriMo Prep - Journey to your first 50,000 words


with Kate Johnston

Calendar Sep 25, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Ever wanted to write a novel? Ever tried NaNoWriMo? This is a workshop for all creative writers who want to write a novel and are interested in participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which takes place worldwide Nov. 1 – Nov. 30. NaNoWriMo’s challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days—which is possible, but hey, those rapid-fire 50,000 words can often lead you on paths you never find your way back from—in other words, a novel you never finish. Then that hard work ends up in a drawer, or in the trash. Don’t be that writer! NaNoWriMo Prep will take the guesswork out of crafting your story and give you tools to help you finish your novel! We’ll hone our ideas into concepts by challenging our writer selves with informed questions so that we can avoid the pitfalls of loss of interest, writer’s block, boring drafts, and Nowheresville groundwork. All you need for this class is a story idea and a determination to write your butt off for 30 days in November. All writing levels and experiences welcome.

Monday, Sept. 25 - Oct. 23, 6:30-8 p.m., 4 sessions * no class 10/9

Course Fee: $45
