Get A Jump Start On Your Novel

24 hour Write-In: Get a Jump Start on Your Novel

Fredericton, NB - August 14th, 2010. The Freddy Words writing group will be hosting a 24-hour Write-In starting at noon on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at the Fredericton Inn. The cost of the Write-In is $20 if paid by August 7 or $30 after that. Proceeds from the event will go to support National Novel Writing Month, a challenge to write a 50,000-word novel in the month of November. There will also be a meet n' greet social event Friday night, August 13.

The write-in will take place in two large rooms set up with tables and chairs. You are welcome to arrive and leave at any time during the course of the event. We encourage you to set personal goals for your time at the 24-Hour Write-In, such as number of words written or amount of time spent writing. There will be writing games and other activities going on to keep you motivated to reach your personal goals.

The Fredericton Inn is conveniently located near many food outlets. You can find out more about the hotel from their web site: A few couches for out-of-town participants are available with members of Freddy Words. These are provided on a first-come first-serve basis.

To register, please email with your name and whether you would like to be billeted with one of our members. We can accept payment by PayPal or cheque, and we accept cash at the door. We will respond to confirm you are on our list, and your spot will be secure once we receive your payment.
