Write-In! Hey writers! Come down and write! This is one of our exciting events! We are open 12:00 – 8:00 every day. Sit alongside other writers, and share your love of writing. Bounce ideas, share collective wisdom, or just sit in silence. The point is to write. Stop in any time, write as long as you want.
What is a write in? A write-in is exactly how it sounds. It’s a forum for writers to have a dedicated space and time to work on their projects. The point is to write, not to talk, but you may find people to bounce ideas off quietly. You work diligently for as long as you want, and you can record your word count with the organizer. There is no competition, no judgement, and no rules. The point of a write-in is simply to encourage you to write!
CONTEST: Register your word count at the front counter for your chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate. It doesn’t matter if you wrote 5 or 5000 words, every entry counts.
