The Freddy Words writing group will be hosting a 24-hour Write-In starting at noon on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at the Fredericton Inn. The cost of the Write-In is $20 if paid by August 7 or $30 after that. Proceeds from the event will go to support National Novel Writing Month.
National Novel Writing Month (http://www.nanowrimo.org) is a challenge to write a 50,000-word novel in the month of November. In that spirit, we are encouraging participants to set personal goals for the 24-Hour Write-In. There will be writing games and other activities going on throughout the event to keep participants motivated. There will also be a meet n’ greet social event Friday night, August 13.
The Fredericton Inn is conveniently located near many food outlets. You can find out more about the hotel from their web site: http://www.frederictoninn.nb.ca/. A few couches for out-of-town participants are available with members of Freddy Words. These are provided on a first-come first-serve basis.
