NaNoWriMo Kick-Off Party - Friday, Nov. 1, 5:00-6:30pm
Come to the kick-off party to learn more about this national program and meet other local writers participating in this contest.  Let's get you started on your novel - eat snacks, pick up some writing tips and have fun!
For adults & teens in grades 7 & up.  Registration requested.

NaNoWriMo Meetups - Wednesdays, Nov. 6, 13 & 20 & Thursdays, Nov. 7, 14 & 21, 5-8pm
All month long we will also host regular meetups at OFL - check in with your peers, overcome your writer's block or just come to find a cozy spot to sit and write.  Each time you stop by OFL to do some writing, visit our fireplace area to enter into a raffle, read "pep talks" from well-known writers, challenge handouts, book displays and more.  We want to help you finish that novel!

Have you participated in NaNoWriMo before?  Want to help us plan the kick-off party and meetups at OFL?  Email Alyssa Newton at or call 315-492-1727.
