July 16: Mid-Summer Write-A-Thon

Come join me for a day of writing and inspiration!

“The event runs from 9:30-4:30 (PST), including an Open Mic from 3:30-4:30 for anyone who wants to read or perform what they worked on during the Write-a-Thon (or something else they have created).

On event day, you will sign in to the Zoom meeting ready to write and to be inspired. We suggest having everything ready to work on a piece of writing. That means bring your notebook, your favourite pen, your laptop, your headphones, and whatever else you need to be productive. Some people will be spending their time writing letters to friends, others will be working on the first draft of a novel, and some will be working on school assignments. You are free to work on whatever you want. “
