Hey NaNoWriMo participants in San Diego!

First, let’s just say–we get you! We know what you are doing and many of us here at SDWI are doing it too!

You’ll find that San Diego Writers, Ink is a community of writers and if you haven’t been involved with us before, we hope you will be in the future.

We’ll be listing NaNoWriMo-related events for SDWI here. Check back as we list things. Also note our great workshops throughout the month listed on the sidebar to the right!

October (10/12, 10/19): NaNoWriMo prep class by Tammy Greenwood

November 1 (Fri):  Free Party!  All writers invited for social time (cookies! wine! fun!) at our monthly open house.  We’re dedicating this month’s get together to the NaNoWriMo writers.  This is part of “Friday Night Liberty” which means all the arts organizations in Liberty Station open their doors so there is lots to see and do!  5pm-8pm.

November 16 (Sat): Finish What You Started–a writing marathon.  $45/$50.  Writing from 10am-5pm with other writers.

Looking for a place to write?  Join our ROOM TO WRITE for FREE this month only!  All NaNoWriMo participants are welcome to drop-in and join our Room to Write (our quiet write-in times, usually only available to SDWI members).
When?  Weekly Tuesday and Friday from 9am to 11:45am.  Plus 1st and 3rd Sundays 10am-1pm.  Come to the Ink Spot in Liberty Station and write!  (it’s like going to a coffee shop but quieter!  And there are several coffee places within walking distance so bring your coffee with you, if you clean up after yourself!)
