Participants may make some brief notes or an outline before the start of the event, but all actual content must be original and new, and must be done only between the hours of 10:30am and 1:30pm on February 3 (during the event). The challenge is to complete an original 1,000 word finished work by the end of the event.
Please keep your writing family-friendly: no swear words, no graphic violence, and no provocative/suggestive subject matter.
We’ll have a brief break for lunch, so it’s suggested that you bring a brown bag lunch. We’ll provide additional refreshments. Family and friends are welcome to come and watch the writers at work, or participate in other writing-oriented activities! Have your laptop, notebooks, and pens/pencils at the ready, this will be fun!
