Camp graphicWork on your novel or other writing project, meet other local writers and enjoy refreshments at the Chevy Chase Library!  We will be holding write-ins every Wednesday in August from 6-9 p.m. in the meeting room.

These write-ins are part of Camp NaNoWriMo, but you don't need to be committed to writing an entire novel in a month to join us!  All current and aspiring writers of any genre or form are welcome to join our write-ins, which will provide a quiet, productive and encouraging atmosphere in which to write, edit or brainstorm.

Great books available to add to your Olympic fun!
