Free online Meet-Ups for Writers
– Brought to by the Burlington Public Library
Mondays, November 1, 15, and
6 – 7 p.m.
Starting Oct 22, sign up here: https://attend.bpl.on.ca/event/5723191
(And no, you do not need a Burlington Library Card. The registration pages asks for it, but just ignore that.)
Join us for all three evenings or just for one day; arrive sharply at 6:00 p.m. or wander in when you will. It doesn't matter, just come online and hang out with some fellow writers.
But note: You must sign up at least an hour before a session to receive the URL to join us. And yes, you only need to sign up once, and sign-ups will be open until our last session on Nov 29.
We’ll have two rooms:
The writer’s café. Join us here to chat about your work in progress, successes you’ve had, difficulties you’re encountering, and questions you have. Bring your coffee or a glass of wine – after all, there’s no need to drive home
The writing room. This will be a quiet space. Turn your mic off as you enter. Pull up your work in progress, take a deep breath and write! When you get a warren of writers all writing together, the room buzzes with energy; it’s a great motivational boost.
These meet-ups coincide with NationalNovel Writing Month, but you don’t have to be taking part in NaNoWriMo to participate. All you need is an urge to hang out with some fellow writers.
This event is free, but, again, you must register at least an hour before a meet-up. Starting Oct 22, register online here. ~Brian
