NaNoWriMo Virtual Write-in Just what is NaNoWriMo? According to their website, “NaNoWriMo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides tools, structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds — on and off the page”. And November is National Novel Writing Month, when writers all over the world each work on writing an entire novel, or part of one, by setting aside time to work on their craft. Sometimes they work at a “write-in” to give and get support from other writers, and the Fern Ridge Library has created a virtual space where writers can gather each week. Join Meli, library staff member and accomplished writer, as she hosts a virtual write-in every Monday in November, 2 until 4 PM on Zoom. Meli will help you get started with NaNoWriMo, and you will meet up with other new and seasoned writers on Zoom. For more information and to request the Zoom link, email email@example.com, or call 541-935-7512. Free!
SF/Fant Book Club: Winter Worlds
Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club Zoom: Winter Worlds December has a chill in the air, prompting Sci-Fi/Fantasy Fans to explore Winter Worlds in a Zoom gathering on Wed., December 9 at 6:30. Read any book that is set in a frozen wasteland or sub-zero planet, that has blizzardy badlands or a snowman gone rogue. A holiday robot, a wizard in a frosty castle, or an alien with an icy attitude will fit the theme nicely. We’ll share all the adventures! And if you’re just looking for some snowy reading suggestions, you’re invited too. Our gatherings are very casual and usually last about an hour. Be sure to bring a snack, a cup of holiday cheer, and an extra blanket to keep out the draft. You will need to download the Zoom App to your device, and email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library (541) 935-7512 for a link to join in the discussion. Newbies always welcome – adults only please.
