Why not write a novel in November? Springfield Public Library and their generous sponsors are offering a whole host of events including write-ins and workshops to help you write and publish that novel you have always wanted to!

Twice a week, through the month of November, you can join a write-in at the library: Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m., in the Adult Reading Area and Saturdays from 2-4 p.m., in the Library Meeting Room at the Springfield Public Library. Write-ins generally last for two hours and people may come and go over the course of the event.  Tuesday write-ins are facilitated by NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaisons for Eugene/Lane County.
