Chris Baty, Founder of National Novel Writing Month
Having trouble writing that novel? Come to the next California Writers Club (CWC) meeting where Chris Baty, founder of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), will speak about the benefits and rationale on how to write a first draft in 30 days.
In 1999, Chris played organizer and cheerleader for 21 writers. That number grew to 79,813 adults and now over 15,000 students in 2006.
A freelance writer by trade; his work has appeared in the Washington Post, Believer, and Lonely Planet guidebooks. He is also the author of "No Plot? No Problem", a popular book based on the 30-day program.
Writers who have participated include several award-winners and Sara Gruen, author of "Water for Elephants" who landed a $5 million two-book deal after participating in NaNoWriMo.
If you've ever considered writing a novel, or struggle with the one you're currently writing, don't miss this meeting!
