NaNoWriMo: Are You In?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a creative writing project that takes place annually in November. The goal is to write a 50,000-word manuscript between November 1 and November 30. Anyone can participate. If you want to flex your creative writing muscles, join us for an hour of quiet, distraction-free writing at 6 p.m. on November 7, November 14, and November 21.


No-Shave November

No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving. In doing so and then donating the money typically spent on shaving products to cancer education, participants raise cancer awareness and evoke conversation.
