November 2016 Meeting

We’re joining in with NaNoWriMo this month, so we won’t be in Brogans on the 5th November: we’ll be at Swindon Central Library (Regent Circus, SN1 1QG) from 12 – 3.30.

Even if you’re not participating in NaNo, do come along for some focused
writing time, alongside discussions about which of your characters to hit
with a shovel…

Here’s what NaNoWriMo says:

“Write-ins! The best kind of meet-up in November. Here, you’ll get to
write your novel alongside other Wrimos, discuss how the event is going so
far, and share and receive advice and tips for the month. Coffee, cake,
and other refreshments are available for purchase from the café.

We meet around the back of the café. We’ll have a poster up — and we’ll
be the crowd with laptops and notebooks!”

November 2016: NaNoWriMo

This November, the Swindon Free Writers will be taking part in NaNoWriMo. The aim of National Novel Writing Month is to write 50,000 words in a month – get that first draft down, write the story you’ve always wanted to, and join in with the enthusiasm and chaos of other people all trying to do the same!

The official events and write-ins are listed on the Swindon Forums; as well as write-ins every Saturday in Swindon Library, there’s evening events and online word-sprints on the NaNo site.

Everything kicks off on Sunday 30th October with the Launch Party at Swindon Central Library from 13.00 – 15.00 – hope to see you there!
