The Arts Center’s Workshop on October 20th Supports a Country-Wide Program
NaNoWriMo is an annual event that takes place in November and encourages people to challenge themselves to write a novel of 50,000 words in 30 days. The workshop will take place on October 20th from 1-3pm.
While the program requires that writers write their novels during the month of November, preparation for the novel can happen prior to that month. This workshop will give participants an introduction to the program, information about planning and strategies for “winning” the month. Everyone who reaches the word count is a winner of the program. The workshop will be led by Amanda Kaufman, a two-time winner of NaNoWriMo.
“NaNoWriMo is a great community event and we are pleased to bring this workshop to the area,” says Emily Owens, NCCCA Education Coordinator. “It can be a little overwhelming to start a project that asks you to try to write so much in a limited amount of time, and we are positive that Amanda will provide participants with the techniques needed to start November with confidence and finish the month reaching the target goal.”
The workshop is $25 or $20 for members of the Arts Center. It will take place at the Arts Center in downtown Plattsburgh.
NaNoWriMo is organized nationally by the Office of Letters and Light based in California. The program also has a youth version for those under 17 called the Young Writers Project. Information about these national programs can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org/en and information about local events for November can be found under the “Events” tab at plattsburgharts.org.
The Arts Center is open to visitors Tuesday through Friday, 10am - 5pm and Saturdays, 10am - 4pm. For a complete listing of classes and workshops, please visit the NCCCA Arts Center’s website at: www.plattsburgharts.org
