Push to PRO Write-in

Saturday, June 11th— Pajama Day

Saturday, July 9th — Costume Day

(Or just wear whatever you’d like, no judgement)

Everyone is welcome—PRO, PAN, Aspiring PRO members, Associate members, your mother. . . okay, not her (unless she’s a member, of course). We’ll be using this time to encourage members to make their goals and qualify for PRO, but we also want to encourage everyone to carve out some time to write.

Low stress—it’s simply a write-in with some extra bells and whistles. Except a little quieter than actual bells and whistles.

 Why should you come?

  • Achieve your wordcount goals—and RWA’s!
  • Win prizes!
  • Ask your burning questions from PAN members!
  • Join a Brainstorming Sessions!

 We hope to see you there!
