Thanks to a grant from the Boulder County Arts Alliance we are able to expand our NaNoWriMo events this year!
A Month Full of Writing Events at the Lyons Regional Library
Lyons Regional Library is excited to kick-off our National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) events for the month of November. We’re tapping in to our talented local writing community to offer an array of writing workshops to help support, encourage, and build the writing community in our area. All events will be free and held at the Lyons Regional Library at 405 Main Street.
We’re kicking off the month with a community writing circle led by local author Elizabeth Marglin. “This class is for people who are drawn to writing but somehow have convinced themselves they ‘can’t’ write – or for those so caught up in the strategies of craft they’ve lost sight of all aliveness,” says Marglin. We will have two open writing circles this month, on Wednesday, November 2nd at 6:30 pm and on Saturday, November 12th at 10 am. Bring a notebook and some pens to participate.
Calling all Dr. Who and science fiction fans! We’ve got an exciting writing workshop based on all things Whovian led by STEMpunk writing expert Richard Blake. Brush up on your sci-fi writing skills and explore the world of fan fiction in this interactive workshop. All ages welcome! Saturday, November 5th from 10 am – 12:30 pm.
For our next writing event, area author Kayann Short will lead us in a writing workshop on Saturday, November 19th at 10 am. Kayann is the author of A Bushel’s Worth: An Ecobiography and a contributor to the anthology Dirt: A Love Story.
NaNoWriMo is an annual international event that challenges writers to write a novel of 50,000 words in the month of November. For more information, visit www.nanowrimo.org. For those participating in NaNoWriMo, we have designated writing times set aside this month. The library is always open for future novelists, but if you’d like to write alongside fellow NaNoWriMo participants, then join us on Wednesday, Nov. 16th at 6:30; Saturday, Nov. 26th at 10 am; and Wednesday, Nov. 30th at 6:30 pm for community writing time.
Lyons Regional Library is especially excited to be a 2016 recipient of a Boulder County Arts Alliance Endowment Project Grant, which helps us bring these programs to the community.
