Write Together: NaNoWriMo Edition!

Wednesday, November 307:00—9:00 PMZoom

Write Together is back, this time for the month of November (aka NaNoWriMo) and we hope you can join us for some weekly writing as part of a community! 

The SPL and Amy Johnson will host a 2-hour online cowriting session Wednesday evenings from 7–9 PM ET. We’ll start with 10 minutes of chat, then break to write for 50 minutes—and then do it all over again.

Sessions are designed to be flexible: Come to one session, come to every session. Come for one hour or for both. Advance a work-in-progress or write from optional writing prompts (provided). Whatever works for your schedule and process.

Any and all kinds of writing are welcome: NaNoWriMo projects, but also everything else. Deep in a memoir? Revising a screenplay? Drafting an op-ed or a game or a visual novel? These sessions are for you. Or maybe you want some time to simply play with words, to write an impromptu poem, to just see where your pen/keyboard takes you—these sessions are for you, too.

These are relaxed, low-pressure sessions intended to uplift. Come write with us!
