30% Off 1-Month Membership at The Writers Junction for WriMos!

Writers Junction LogoGetting lonely or distracted sitting at home with your laptop? Are the coffee shop grinding noises setting your teeth on edge and making writing that next chapter nigh impossible? Come to The Writers Junction!  Based in Santa Monica, The Junction is a shared workspace for writers by writers where writers write.  It’s where you’ll find the quiet of a library, the society of a coffee shop, the focus of a daily office, and the camaraderie of a private club.  It’s where you can work in splendid isolation, within a supportive community.
For NaNoWriMo participants, The Junction is offering a 30% off 1-Month membership just for us. That’s $262 for a 1-Month Full-Time Membership (regularly $375), or $175 for a 1-Month Part-Time Membership (regularly $250) at The Writers Junction.  With this offer, there is no initiation fee and no required commitment to a 6 or 12-month membership.

Central Valley Writer’s Group

For anyone located in the Central Valley area looking for a writing group, check out the Central Valley Writer’s Group.

The Central Valley Writer’s Group is a year long “write-in” for those who want to continue the writing momentum of NaNoWriMo all year round!

The group meets every Saturday from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at:

JumpCut Cafe
3203 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA (map)

As part of the National Novel Writer’s Month “Now What” program, we’re hosting a year long “write-in” for all those NaNoWriMo’s who don’t want to lose the excitement of the November event.

The main focus is to WORK. Of course you are welcome to socialize with your fellow writers, and we hope you do, but be respectful of those who come to get words on the page.

What can you accomplish?
– Write in a decades old cafe that saturated in creative energy of past artists
– Get help from your fellow writers to overcome writer’s block
– Get inspiration and motivation from others with similar goals
– Find a critique buddy or group to review and get constructive feedback

This is an open form work session. All are welcome. Whether you are an accomplished author with multiple works or the newbie with only a dream, this is a place you can come to and get work done.

Occurs every Saturday. Come one and come all!
