September Skill Sharing Class. This class provides an introduction to NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. This is a month-long writing challenge for all ages and is led by Lucy Bogel, Sophie Kirby (both whom have published books as a product of this challenge in the past), with assistance from Julie Mushkin (who has experience teaching this challenge in her professional career). The books can be fiction, poetry or non-fiction. Authors will write their novels during November and then make edits and share cover ideas during the month of December. If you have thoughts about writing down a family history, favorite family recipes, or creating a fictional story, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try.
The Zoom class on September 26, 2021, from 6 to 8p will introduce the NaNoWriMo writing project, outline the concept of writing 15,000 or more words in a month, and provide a timeline for planning and writing your book in November. Authors from our parish will share their experience using the NaNoWriMo format. A class fee of $5 will raise money to support AMPED Louisville. In addition to AMPED’s youth mentorship activities, during the pandemic they have also become a powerful black-owned business accelerator in West Louisville.
