Ever wanted to write a book? Here's your chance to learn how! It's pretty intimidating staring at that blank sheet of paper, so in October we will learn how to plan and prepare for a long work of fiction (or nonfiction!) and in November we will participate in the Young Writers program for NaNoWriMo(National Novel Writing Month) to try and meet our personal writing goals. This class meets the first three weekends of October, skipping the last weekend because the instructor is at Geek Girl Con and invites her students to stop by for free books at her table. The class then picks up in November, writing like crazy every Saturday morning alongside community members also participating in NaNoWriMo (except for Thanksgiving weekend). Now's the time to share your ideas and get working!
