NaNoWriMo is starting soon – and with it, ChiWriMo is getting ready to write words, kick butt, and take names. And to help us do just that, we have a special announcement!
Grant Faulkner, the Executive Director of National Novel Writing Month, will be in Chicago to give a talk for the Chicago Humanities Council: “How to Write Fast—and Why” on Friday, November 4, 2016, from 6:00 to 7:00 P.M.
NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) wants you to write… and write fast. Each November, thousands of names and nobodies churn out 50,000 words over 30 days. Notable results include Sara Gruen’s Water For Elephants and Marissa Meyer’s Cinder. Started in 1999, NaNoWriMo has become a worldwide phenomenon and a fable of the internet age—creative empowerment without gatekeepers. Writer and NaNoWriMo executive director Grant Faulkner will lead a hands-on exploration of the method behind the madness of fast—and uninhibited—writing.
Friday, 11/04/2016, 6:00 to 7:00 P.M.
Francis W. Parker School, Diane and David B Heller Auditorium
