October Pre-writing Series

For the first time, HWG will be hosting a series of hands-on pre-writing sessions.  These are designed to help you build a strong foundation for your next novel before you start writing. In these sessions, you will be able to develop the backgrounds and motivations of your characters, set up the main story arc conflicts, create subplot conflicts, delve into the setting of the story and fully develop the foundational elements.  These sessions are FREE to all writers, both members and nonmembers as part of our Nanowrimo season.  Click here for more details and to RSVP.
