A Touch of Tech & NaNoWriMo
October ~10:30 – 12:30
Writers Forum Newsletter Editor George Parker will provide a two-part presentation at our October 13 meeting. The first half will be an overview of ways to use technology to enhance your writing. This won’t just be a talking head presentation; George will actually demonstrate through our new computer display projector ways that you can use writing software and the Internet to make your writing job a little easier. We will take a look at the programs Word and Scrivener, and at writing and literary websites. George will also demonstrate ways that Writers Forum is moving into the tech world with the blog, Facebook, e-newsletter, and potentially…podcasting.
The second half of the presentation will introduce you to NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, which occurs every November. The goal of NaNoWriMo participants is to crank out a 50,000 word rough draft of a writing project in the month of November. Find out how they accomplish that goal, and how you can participate. NaNoWriMo might just be the thing you need to jump-start your big writing project! Come and check out the NaNoWriMo challenge!
Writers Form meets from 10:30am – 12:30pm monthly (except for July and August) at All Saints Episcopal Church, located at 2150 Benton Drive, Redding, CA. Doors open at 10 am.
