Next Meeting

November 8, 2014
RCRW General Meeting/Workshop
10:00A – 12:30P
PCC Sylvania – Room TCB 218


November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! To celebrate this month dedicated to our craft, RCRW will host a ‘Write In’ in lieu of our usual training presentation.

Question: But what if I’m not ‘officially’ participating in NaNoWriMo?

Answer: Come anyway!!!

All RCRW members plus a guest are welcome to attend. Come to be inspired, brainstorm, plot-storm, commiserate, get words on the page, and have a GREAT time with fellow writers. <Note: Quiet space will be provided for those who need silence for added focus.>

There will be writing prompts, creativity exercises, brainstorming options, CHOCOLATE, and more.

PLUS, there will be a 1,000 words in one hour (#1k1hr) sprint!

Bring the tools, lucky charms, and journals you use to create your stories.

Wear your comfy clothes…

A Prize will be awarded for the “Best Working Writer Attire” <Note: Creativity and a sense of the absurd are highly likely to be rewarded!>
