Do You NaNo?

NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month — happens every November. In a flurry of writing, thousands of authors attempt to turn out hundreds of thousands of words to each finish a novel in a month.


How do they do it? One of the ways is through write-ins.


A write-in is simply a group of writers coming together — ideally where there is food and coffee! — to write together for a couple of hours. Sisters in Crime/LA will support our writing community this year with several write-ins across Los Angeles in November. Whether or not you’re officially doing NaNo, you are welcome to join fellow Sisters and Misters for a couple of ours of writing throughout the month. No pressure, just dedicated time to get words on a page.


Want more information? Email Laura Brennan at, and keep an eye on the website. Dates and places will be posted as we get closer to November 1st.


Happy writing!
