We have a great slate of events for the 2018 National Novel Writing Month season. Notes from previous preparatory workshops are available. The popular Library Crawl offers writers plenty of opportunities to work on their novels at write-ins while earning chances for nice prizes at the TGIO. As always, consider joining the Writing Journey, our year-round writing group.

    Please join me in welcoming NaperWriMo's latest volunteer co-Municipal Liaison, Eleanor Roth! Ellie was a co-Editor of the Journey's biggest anthology to date, Near Myths (see http://writingjourney.org/books for links), she organized two of our most popular Journey meetings this season, and she brings a wealth of new ideas and energy to our ML group (Samuel A McAdams, Jenny Johnson, Tim Yao), just in time for the upcoming 2019 NaNoWriMo season. She will be leading one of our five preparatory workshops in October (see http://naperwrimo.org/prep for information on all of these). She writes SF/thrillers and she is the assistant to the president of Browne and Miller, Chicago's leading Literary Agency. Ellie is also a reviewer and blogger for the ALA Booklist and is a Goodreads librarian.

    Thanks so much to Ellie Roth and Danielle Egan-Miller for their workshop February 9th with the Writing Journey. It was a fantastic session; we all learned a lot about literary agents, query letters, and traditional publication.
