With the heat and humidity of July all around us, it may seem unnatural to be thinking about National Novel Writing Month, with the chill of November and the call of Thanksgiving. However, your Detroit leadership is gearing up now to make 2019 the best NaNoWriMo yet! And if you’re interested in helping with this work, this email is for you!
- We’re currently looking for people interested in becoming a Detroit Minion! What is a Minion? They help the MLs (Municipal Liaisons) steer the ship! They run write-ins, help organize events, and keep our online presence running smoothly. For a more comprehensive look at the job, please see the job description here. If you’re interested in becoming a Minion, we’ve got an application right here. Our current leadership structure is 3 MLs and 6 Minions, and now we’re in search of one new Minion. If you think that’s you, please apply! The deadline is Saturday, July 20th.
- July’s Writing Space is less than one week away! Now is a great time to spend one day a month planning your novel. If you start next week, that’s four planning sessions before November! This month’s Writing Space is at the Patchwork Collective in Ferndale (22007 Woodward Ave.) on Tuesday, July 16th, from 6-9pm. Snacks and coffee will be provided with a $5 optional suggested donation. See the event on facebook for more information, and be sure to join our facebook group for the latest on our non-November Writing Spaces.
To recap: Apply here by July 20th if you’d like to become a Minion, and join us next Tuesday (July 16th) at Patchwork Collective for an evening of planning or working on whatever creative endeavor moves you.
