Are you already stocking up on caffeine and stickers, wrist supports and notebooks? Is November just too far away for you to contemplate? Or are you terrified that it’s just around the corner and you aren’t ready? We have the cure for you.
Your shiny new MLs present two exciting new events to help you drag the muse out of hibernation and get ready for NaNo 2014. Come to one, come to both … we’d love to see you. And watch this space for details of the Kick-off Party on 27th October too.
Come out and meet your fellow Toronto Wrimos for an evening of board games and fun. This event will give everybody a chance to get acquainted before we all start writing like mad. We’ll have a variety of different games, but if you have a favourite feel free to bring it with you.
Yes, this event is all-ages and wheelchair accessible.
WHEN: Wednesday October 8, 6pm – 9pm
WHERE: 55 St. Clair Avenue West, ground floor, Canadian Cancer Society meeting room (the room is through a door that is just to the right of the elevators, there will be signs)
The main doors lock at 7pm, so if you’re arriving late just call the helpline to be let in.
TTC: Subway to St. Clair Station and then walk one block west, or get off the 512 St. Clair streetcar at Deer Park (one stop west of the station). Make sure you’re on the west side of Yonge & St. Clair as there’s a 55 St. Clair East as well, and they don’t have games.
Lost en route or arriving after 7pm: Call 647-478-3055 and press 1 to reach Sarah
Are you a pants-er or a planner? Whether you know them in advance or find them out as you go, your novel is going to need a setting, characters and a plot to drive it forward. Join Toronto’s MLs and your fellow wrimos for three workshops on these areas of your writing and a chance to kick-start your novel … or somebody else’s.
Yes, this event is all-ages. Sadly the venue have only given us an upstairs space, so it is not wheelchair accessible.
WHEN: Saturday 18th October 2pm – 5pm
WHERE: THIRD Floor, Camaraderie, 2241 Dundas St West. (If you’ve been to previous events at Camaraderie’s Adelaide St E location, please note they’ve moved).
TTC: Subway to Dundas W Station, then walk about 3mins south to just before Dundas / Roncesvalles. OR Streetcar 504/505 right to the door.
Lost en route: Call 647-478-3055 and press 1, 2 or 3 to reach your MLs.
