Oshkosh Goes #NaNoWriMo2015

The Oshkosh Area Writers Club is hosting the following special events at the Oshkosh Public Library, 106 Washington Ave. All events are free and open to the public.

What is NaNoWriMo? 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26 Lower level meeting room

What is National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo)? The largest writing project on the planet! What’s that? You have little or no writing experience? No problem! We’ll give you tips and tricks to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. Think you can’t do it? Oh yes you can!

Kick-off Party 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1 First Floor Reading Room

You’ve committed to writing a novel this month – we’ll see that you get off to a great start. Come with paper or laptop and be ready to write! Refreshments will be served.

A Night of Writing Dangerously 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7 First Floor Reading 

Room Tonight’s goal is to write 1000 words. Maybe you’ll only write 200. The point is, you don’t have to write alone. Join us for light snacks and heavy whining – then it’s time to start writing! Note: The Library will be closed to the general public; use main entrance adjacent to parking lot.

Halfway Home 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15 First Floor Reading Room

Are you over 25,000 words at this point? Whether you are or not, stop in and write with friends. Remember: it’s about quantity, not quality. We’ll help you silence your inner editor so you can add words and get closer to your goal.

Sugar Rush 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18 First Floor Reading Room 

So many donuts…so few words. Fuel your writing with juice and bakery items. The goal this morning: Get your word count higher than your blood sugar level!

“Thank Goodness It’s Over” Party 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30 First Floor Reading Room 

Join your fellow authors in a celebration of your effort, win or lose. Refreshments will be provided.

Events are sponsored by the Oshkosh Public Library in partnership with the Oshkosh Area Writers Club and would not be possible without funding from the Friends of the Oshkosh Public Library.
