Tomorrow (Thursday) at 7pm, I’ll be participating in a new panel series at the Arlington County Library: Shut Up & Write! Jon Skovron, Diana Peterfreund, and I will be chatting about writing first drafts and NaNoWriMo.
This is the first in a series of bimonthly panels Jon and I have been organizing all summer, and we’re really excited about it. Going forward, Jon will be the moderator. Our next panel will be December 12, and Cristin Terrill, Jeri Smith-Ready, and Elisa Nader will be discussing writing tools and software. We were inspired by the fantastic panels David Levithan organizes at the NYPL, and wanted to do something for the writing community in DC that is more focused on craft instead of promotion. One More Page Books will be on hand to sell books for the authors to sign, but we really want to have in-depth conversations about the writing processes and answer questions from our audience.
If you’re a writer in the DC area (or a reader who’d like an inside look into the writing process), we’d love to see you there!
